Games that look attractive are always more attractive to play. This is certainly true of the abstract tactical game “Shiftago” with its large marbles in four different colours. The aim of the game is to arrange the marbles of your own colour into a row. In the basic game, you just need five in a row to win. In both of the advanced versions it’s all about who has the most points. The longer your row of marbles, the more points you’ll score. But each time you score you need to remove some of those scoring marbles. Something else you’ll need to take into account is that the marbles cannot be pushed off the other end of the board. Two-player games allow this quick and easily-learned concept to really shine.
