Abalone is a turn based board game re-designed for the computer.

Abalone is an award-winning two-player abstract strategy board game designed by Michel Lalet and Laurent Lévi in 1987. Players are represented by opposing black and white marbles on a hexagonal board with the objective of pushing six of the opponent's marbles off the edge of the board.

The game is arranged similar to Chinese checkers but without starting spaces and with a "moat" around the edge of the board. Players start with 14 marbles instead of 10, there are only two "colors", and the starting arrangement is different. But the game also uses a hexagon with marbles and 5 pits on each edge.

Abalone was published in 1990 and has sold more than 4.5 million units. The year it was published it received one of the first Mensa Select awards in New York, New York. It is currently sold in more than thirty countries.

The aim of Abalone is to eject six of the opponent's marbles from the board. You can move up to three marbles of your color at one time, which must be connected in a straight line, in any direction, the destination fields are free or occupied by a minor number of opponent's marbles.

The game runs in a 830 x 650 windowed screen.
