The concept is simple - race your marbles from one end of the board to the other.
The only thing standing in your way? Your opponent,
who is heading towards you and can bump your pieces back to the start! Move strategically to avoid your opponent, move your own pieces into the end zone, or bump them back to the start - that’s your Gambit!
But don’t get your marbles stranded, or it’s game over!
Gambit is a two player game that can be played anywhere, anytime, by anybody. The simple nature of the game allows anybody who can count to six in any language to play it anywhere in the world.
Every variation of Gambit will involve three stages of play:
Opening stage, where players strategically advance their pieces from their starting positions before encountering opponent’s pieces.
When players have the opportunity to bump opponent pieces back to their starting position by landing directly on them.
When both players are beyond their opponent’s pieces and are racing for their respective end zones.

"My premise was to create a board game that anybody could play without reading volumes of confusing rules, but still be interesting enough to play – something grandparents could play with their grandchildren, or adults could play against each other in any social setting. Gambit combines strategic thinking with luck of the dice to come out on top. It has no language or age barriers, and players of all experience levels start each game on equal footing.
I hope you enjoy playing Gambit, and look forward to reading your reviews and game experiences."
