So much fun

It is hard to find a game that my husband will play, but this is it. Challenging but winnable. We are having lots of fun with it.

Great game for kids and adults

OMG, my 5 year old loves this game. So does my daughter, whose age will not be disclosed. :-) I didn't know if he would be interested, but decidedecided that if he didn't, I would take it to my house. However, that will never happen. Grandson and his friends play, as does daughter and her friends. They also play together. I've been allowed to play a few times, and had a great time figuring out how to keep it from losing it's balance.More > < Less

Great Game for Many Reasons

Everytime someone comes over they want to play this game. It is a conversation piece and catches everyone's eye initially. Then they all want to play. Best game I've bought in a while.More > < Less

Great Idea

6/8/2019 by Cheleste

We like this game! It's nice enough looking to leave on our covered back patio table from spring to fall. We play it often just by leaving it on the table as we work around the house, stopping to make our next move, then we go back to work. We recommend this for youth to elder. Not over challenging, not boring.More > < Less

About Rock Me Archimedes

Marble Board Game

This balancing-act of a marble board game is named after Archimedes, the famous Greek mathematician who discovered the laws of the lever.

Rock Me Archimedes is made from beautiful beechwood and the game is half strategy, half luck.

You win by getting all of your marbles to the end of the board or by tricking the other player into losing (aka: tipping the board so it touches the table). Sounds straightforward, right? Well, this is where the game gets interesting: the whole board sits on a teeter-tottering lever.

You’ll have to be nimble and weigh your options on each turn. Either add a new marble to the middle of the board, or roll the die to move any existing pieces that number of spaces.

When the game is over, Rock Me Archimedes’ unique wood design makes a great coffee table decoration until next time.
