ToysBulletin.com reviews a very fast strategic game from Gigamic and distributed by Back Alley Traders.
Here is an interesting game that arrived in our office recently. It is called “Kabaleo,” and the game requires players to discretely place a certain color of round pyramid pieces in the playing area. This needs to be done in such a way, that by the end of the game the majority of the colors still in play are your own. This is not as easy as it sounds.
“Kabaleo” is a game designed for 2-4 players ages 8 years old and up, and it includes 66 of the pyramid shaped pieces, along with a handy cloth storage bag. Among the 66 pieces, there are 6 pieces in 6 different colors that are only used to choose each players target color (color is only visible on these pieces by turning the pyramid upside down), 24 base pieces (4 in each of 6 colors) marked with a single color ring, and 36 pieces (6 in each of 6 colors) with two color rings. Depending on the number of players, the rules designate how many of the various pieces are used. For example, in a two-player game, only 4 colors are used. So, in that case, the game requires only 4 pieces for choosing a target color, 16 base pieces with a single color ring and 24 pieces with two color rings.
