I saw mentioned somewhere that a player had problems with their pawn passing another players pawn and their marbles sticking. I'm thinking about buying this one and would just like to know its faults before I make a decision.

I have never had a problem with the marbles sticking to each other when passing. I play it all the time with my kids and so.

I have never had any problems with players passing each others' pawns. My kids have been playing this game since they were about 4-5 years old. The only issue early on was convincing them not to "test" the walls. "Just pick a direction and go" has to be said a few times.

A little late to the thread, but I too agree, no issues with the marbles sticking... The game is excellent!

I just bought this and I find that the pawns can't pass in a corridor without running up against the walls or repelling the passed pawn across the wall! It's a really cute concept, but that's a major flaw! The injunction to slide quickly might help, but not by much. The board is just too small for magnets of that strength. Maybe I'll try smaller ball bearings... that might fix the problem.

Just keep in mind that the BB has to be big enough to hit the walls.

Pure mathematics is the world's best game. It is more absorbing than chess, more of a gamble than poker, and lasts longer than Monopoly. It's free. It can be played anywhere - Archimedes did it in a bathtub

I have never had problem with that. You simply move the inactive pawn a bit to a corner and there are enough space for the other pawn to cross.
