"Time to play marbles again"

The official Abalone game for Android

Very well, this is how it works: if you played -thereby loved- Abalone at the time, look for the "download" tab and go ahead. For sure, trust us.

In case you haven't ever played Abalone, or you haven't even ever heard about it, know that it was one of the latest gifts XX Century gave us, a game that took two minutes to learn but you fell for a lifetime. To start with, this game comes with one of the most comprehensive and useful tutorials ever, indeed we wonder why not all poker, chess and whatever board games for mobile devices don't come with similar introductory features.

User interface and graphics are above average to what we are used to, looking great even on low end devices. Game brings a level-based "campaign", so solo playing becomes a delight over 60 levels peppered with quite a handful achievements. In addition, all known variants of the game have been included and there's an editor in case that isn't enough. Of course, there's a hotseat multiplayer option to liven up your bus trips, and also an asynchronous online option.

Anyway, it's how all board game apps should be, able to not only add a new way to play Abalone, but also lure new players into it.

This is the paid version of it, but there's a free version you might check out first.

    The rating system needs some improvement. I shouldn't have to spend half an hour playing a much lower rated player to earn 1 lousy point. A players rating should be shown along with an abort on first move option. Other than that, I give the game 4 stars for excellent graphics and play ability. Please consider my suggestions for any future upgrades. Thx!

    The only annoying thing us how the game automatically zooms in if you cancel a move or accidentally try to move a piece you cannot. If you fix that bug it'll be five stars easy!

    Apparently Abalone is one of those games that can be re-themed because today marked the day that I uninstalled this otherwise decent Abalone implementation. This ridiculous branding exercise ruins the otherwise meditative and serene feeling to the game. I understand someone over there thought this was a good idea but it ruins the whole experience and is an otherwise pointless cash-in on the Worl

    Seriously. I disdain all this soccer frenzy. I think one can find most similarly minded people exactly among abstract logic game fans.

    I used to play the physical version of this game. Very interesting play with a definite goal. Can play a game quickly but has a lot of depth. This version is faithful to the physical game. Like it a lot.
