    "Time to play marbles again"

    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.

    Fun game. I'm enjoying playing through the challenges to get the hang of the game. Gameplay is great, but some of the navigation within the app seems to be glitchy. I'd probably rate it 5 stars if the menu navigation issues were fixed.

    Would be very useful in network game to check the ranking of the opponent before beginning the game. Tends to become frustrating when playing 2-3 times against only top100 and losing badly. Or at least randomize the players on similar level of experience.

    When you press (next level) it does not go to the next and the restart level is not working

    Love the game, but the interface is clunky. Also would like the option to play with specific players. This looks like I don't have that option. Needs more work!

    Great teaching aid but you won't climb the ratings ladder fast on a Galaxy S7: it hangs unexpectedly saying you're not connected to the network even if you're only on mobile. Tells you to reconnect but it's hung so you can't. It then times out and YOU lose! SO frustrating. On the other hand I got tons of points when one of my opponents who is apparently higher rank than I lost right out the gate and wasn't even allowed to make his first move. So sad... Abalone is a great game.
