Hollerith Strategy Game by A Kuhnekath-Haebler
Hollerith5 by Andreas Kuhnekath-Haebler
A good shove is half the victory!
Does the term "perforated plate" still ring a bell? This invention by Hermann Hollerith is behind the idea for this game.
There are five different perforated plates in the game, four of which exactly cover the gameboard. Each perforated plate has nine holes, but only one or two holes per plate are marked. These marked holes are big enough for a marble to get through.
On your turn, you shove the free (fifth) plate onto the board. It is crucial to consider carefully how to orient the plate, from which side to shove in the plate, and where the marked holes will be. After that, you insert one of your marbles into an unoccupied hollow of the gameboard.
Players alternate turns until one of them has formed a row of four of his marbles. If one player can no longer insert any of his marbles, he loses immediately.
