Though it seems an odd strategy for a language-independent game like Abalone, this is a German-only edition (text in German on both parts of the box, and the rules leaflet supplied only in German).
The box is hexagonal like the board. In the dimensions, "Length" is the distance between opposite corners, "Width" between opposite edges of the hexagon.
The board is a scaled-down version of the black plastic board with a hole under each "marble position". The marbles are black and white glass.
