Good strategy is concentrate on the center early on. Just try to move all the corner marbles closer to center and make sure nothing is stranded.
When you're down to 10, 11, or 12 marbles, then stop and think. Mentally visualize and work out all remaining possible combinations. If you've worked to move things closer to center odds are great at least one combination that gets it down to 1 peg will now exist, though it isn't absolute.
I actually won the game! Wow, didn't think that would happen. This game brings back memories since we've had one in the family all my life, on the living room table. I think I managed to get one peg remaining once, but it was all about luck that one time. This time around I developed a tactic to move all the pieces inward all the time, and it turns out... it wasn't so difficult after all! Or maybe it was just another lucky run, who knows, it was fun too, though. Nice game!
Am I the only ones who loves this?
It really reminds me of the game Chinese checkers, which is something I play with my mom all the time. It's really cool to see just how far you can get in this game. It's a great game of experimentation. I am glad it informs you when you have lost and when there are no combinations left, as I would have never figured that out myself. While there isn't much in terms of graphics, it makes up for it in terms of how fun it is. If you like a good puzzle game, be sure to check this out.
Everything just looks so authentic. It doesn't matter if there isn't much design, because you have so much fun trying to figure out how to beat it. Sometimes, you have to just play with it, as you might expect with a game like this. While not a noted game, at least someone like me played it. It even makes a cute sound when you get ahead.
I am happy you liked it! :) Thanks for the review! :)
god game but,
good game but, there is a bug, it says i lose when i had only 1 marble left.
I'm not sure if I was the only one this happened to, but for some reason when I clicked the play button, it didn't start the game.
Can you pm me what happened? You at least saw tha board? I can't believe the first PLAY button (the loading one) doesn't work as it is Newgrounds stuff. And I can't believe second Play doesn't work, as it is the most simple thing in flash. So what did you see?
