Although the object of the game is a simple one strategies are virtually endless. Each player tries to line up four of his or her hardwood rounds in a row either vertically horizontally or diagonally. At the end of the game pull the gangplank at the bottom and the rounds will drop back into the cabinet. Crafted from exquisite wood with brass finish metal knob the case housing the game measures 11.25 long and nine inches wide. It's lined with classic green felt. The playing balls are crafted from wood in two vibrant natural colors.About Wood Expressions Inc.For more than 30 years Wood Expressions has been manufacturing importing and distributing games from around the world.
