Strategy comes into play. Mesmorizing how the marbles added effect the lever.

Thank you Archimedes!

My students gave this a total thumbs up! I purchased this recently (waiting for the Grommet to get more in so I can get it from the Grommet) as a fun addition to the "Bellz" game (a total winner too) for my advisory class. They are very into games, and will be honest with me if there is a game that does not wow them. Well, the reaction was intense, great, and swift from my students! They cannot get enough of this game! Why? It involves strategy, thinking, and changes each time you play. It fosters communication. Students were praising each other's strategies, even when one was losing. I am going to get another one because more students want to play. One suggestion: could the company add a few "extra" marbles - someone dropped them, and there is ONE stray marble hiding in my class, somewhere, we don't know. So, I cannot recommend this highly enough. Thanks, Grommet, for featuring this.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.
