With the version offered here you get above all a feast for the eye. As with different variants of chess boards and their figures it was not about that actual game to continue somehow or expand, but simply to the aesthetics. For me personally a game with good materials more joy, because you somehow "sublime" that feels. In my view, should be someone who did not know the game, familiarize yourself first with the basic game idea and its practice, before he reaches the same luxury variant. Otherwise there is a danger that a lot of money here for a copy is purchased, that ultimately is rapidly disappearing in the closet and stay there.
For me personally it has the variant "Abalone Qattro" particularly impressed that allows a game to three or four for two. In the following I would therefore like to give my review for game "Abalone Quattro 'again for the best. Abalone Quattro is priced on a level with "Tav", so I would advise the passionate players to four-player variant and would advise the friends of aesthetic Siel rather Taw.
I would advise against completely from the cheap classic two-player version of abalone. Sooner or later you necessarily like that game rather than just playing sometimes only a couple with three or four people. It would be stupid if you sit with two or three people, but then only two can play at the same time. So ... my thought ... until I grew my Quattro variant.
