Winner of multiple awards internationally, Pentago is a two-player strategy game that will keep you thinking. Get five marbles in a row to win. For two players, there is one black set and one white set of marbles. On your turn, put one marble down and then turn one of the squares 1/4 of a turn. What looked like an unorganized group of marbles may now line up five perfectly for the win. You must visualize what the board will look like after you turn a square as well as keep track of what your opponents will look like. Winner of many awards and a quick, fun game to boot. There is even a book on it. I don't own it or plan to purchase it, but here is the title and link. How to win at Pentago: The Complete Visual Guide for Advancing from Beginner to Master in the Five-in-a-row Board Game That's Sweeping the World.
