Good design where you least expect it. We love playing board games and were delighted by the design and strategy found in Pentago, a Christmas gift we received. The game is a Swedish classic and is all about one-on-one strategy. The board itself, made of natural wood and black and white glass, is handsome enough to leave out on a coffee table as a conversation piece. When someone asks about it, corner them into a game...

Says the box:

Sweden is a nation that is very clever and enjoys a sense of simplicity. Thus it's not suprising that the Swedes would create a game that is so simple and stylistic, yet very smart and deep with strategy and logic. The design's so nice that the Scandinavian Design Center sells the game.
