One more move. You seize your opportunity. As you push the shining line of marbles, tipping your opponent's color over the edge one final time, you know you have won at abalone. The six you need to win sit on the sidelines in the gutter. Your victory is clean. Black and white.

Checkers? Meet Sumo wrestling. These are the two things you have combined to create abalone. If you are a strategic thinker, and enjoy pushing people (or pieces) around, then this is a game for you! Simple gameplay, with a high level of strategy and thinking, this game forces you to think of checkers in a whole new light.
