Rock Me Archimedes is a two player abstract game requiring both strategy and dexterity. The game is named after the ancient Greek mathematician, famous for describing the principle of the lever. The game consists of such items:
- A wooden board affixed to a rounded base
- 14 white marbles and 14 black marbles
- A specially numbered die
- The length of the board – 15 cm
- Plastic figures
The length of the board is engraved with a grid of spaces in which to fit the marbles, 16 rows of 3 spaces each. The goal of the game is for the winning player to move at least 4 of his marbles to one end of the board without either end of the board touching the table at any time. The game begins with no marbles on the board.
