The Abalone game is a two player strategy board game whereby each player chooses a colour and then places their 14 marbles on the board in front of them.
Abalone game objective of is to push the opponent`s marbles off the edge of the board. The first player to eject six of their opponent`s marbles wins.
1988 Michel Lalet and Lauren Levi created Abalone. The idea for the abalone game came when the two animation coordinators ran into the son of a French ambassador who was tired of following his father around on business trips.
Lalet and Levi decided to help the bored youth, and so the idea of Abalone was conceived.
On September of the same year Abalone was officially launched. In 1998, Abalone took home the prestigious honour of "game of the Decade" at the "Festival international des jeux."
Ceramic or pottery refers to a process of forming, firing or baking, and glazing or decorating a mixture of clay and other materials, then refiring it to harden the glaze.
The three ceramics are earthenware, stoneware and porcelain.
Stoneware is made from a particular type of clay that is fired at high temperatures, generally up to 2,372 °F (or 1,300 °C).
Stoneware, named after its dense stone like quality after firing, is tougher and more durable.
