This is my favorite board game. Combines strategy and luck, but strategy is the most imortant element. Originates from Germany in 1960, called Malefiz designed by Werner Schoppner. For 2 to 4 players; the first person to reach the Goal with any one of his men is the winner! As you make your way through the board you can move white barricade pcs (if you land on one) to any open position, creating blocks or protection for your men. Easy to learn, exciting and addicting. Highly recommended. Game board folds in half as shown in photo below.
This premium large round version of the game is the Top of our line. This is something special. Workmanship on the board is beautiful. The playing pcs here are large diameter wood pegs. Easy to handle. The open board measures about 15.5" Dia.
