→ Small Solitaire is a small and compact solitaire game. It is played with glass marbles.
How to play
The game is played as follows. At the beginning, 32 marbles are placed in 33 holes, leaving the middle hole empty. One marble can always jump over another. The condition is that the target field is free. The marble that was jumped over by another marble during a move may be placed in the groove at the edge of the board. It is necessary to be tactically smart so that as many balls as possible end up in the "out" before no further moves are possible.
Design of the Board
The game board was hand kneaded from clay and a raw firing was done. For the design we oriented ourselves on the solitaire game of my grandparents. We chose an extravagant glaze and performed the glaze firing. On the bottom we attached rubber studs to prevent slipping.
This project was designed together with Lucy Li. Many thanks to Stefan Schönauer and the ceramics studio of the University of Applied Arts Wien for the firings.
