Next to Googolplex Solitaire this is our next best seller. A real brain teaser board game for 1 player. We've heard tales of some folks mastering the pattern but it still has us (and almost everyone we meet) stumped!
The Googoler Game is a reformat of an old game we found in the back of a book that was coined the "John Bull Political Puzzle" from the mid 1800's. Originally in a circle format, we modeled it into the Last Man Standing triangle shape.
Each of the 9 spots are marked with R for Red, B for Blue and W for White. The initial set up will reveal each leg of the triangle with Red, White and Blue patterns. Once set up, reference to the marked letter spots are no longer in play.
Moving the lower left Red pawn onto the spot marked #1 will become the first and last move of the game. Moving the first piece will open up a path from another leg of the triangle. No jumping allowed.
The object of the game is to get all three White pawns (right leg of triangle) and all three Blue pawns (top leg) together. The last and final move will be moving the first Red pawn back into the game grid, completing the final piece of the puzzle.
While movement and play is simple, the sheer number of moves required to achieve the winning position makes this game a challenge even for the most avid puzzle and game player.
Hand silk screened in New Hampshire and the game pawns crafted in a small mill in Maine, this USA Made game is hot.
The complete directions are hand silk screened on the bottom of the game board so you will never lose them! In fact, every game is hand silk screened on sealed wood and will take decades (under normal conditions) to wear off.
