Here's the text from the brochure: Quintagon -- An unpredictable game of strategy There are no trivia questions to answer and no pictures to draw. All you need are 5 pawns, 1 to 4 opponents, and an environment that is conducive to the flow of energy. Each player fearlessly but cautiously transcends from his or her home row to their Quintagon. However, the greatest sense of accomplishment and overall objective of the game is to block your opponent's path to their Quintagon while insuring that your progress is not impeded. Bar none, the most intriguing component of Quintagon is the Determinizer. When turned topside down and shaken rhythmically and vigorously and then turned topside up, the marbles inside of this colorful translucent cylinder assembly creates harmony and delights emotions. Once the shaking ceases, the marbles descend into the middle of the Determinizer so that each player can be directed in the pattern and sequence of movement.
