Marbles of Wisdom is a game inspired by Challenge of the Warlords. The action takes place in ancient Greece. Lapides' loved one, Berenika was kidnapped by Hades, the god of the Underworld. Lapides decided to ask the gods of Olympus for help. The gods agree to give him a quest to solve in return of their favours. They set up a board in the sand and placed some coloured stones on it. Each god is offering five riddles to solve. After completing the tasks a gift will be granted, which may be exchanged for Berenika's freedom.

At he beginning of each riddle there are marbles of different colours situated on the 8x8 fields. Each stone may be shifted to any neighbour field on the board. If the field is empty, the marble will just move. If it contains another marble, the marbles will swap places. Creating a vertical or horizontal chain consisting of at least 3 marbles of the same colour will make them disappear. There are two types of marbles: standard stones and special diamonds. Diamonds placed into a chain will explode clearing an area of 3x3. Stones and diamonds of the same colour may be combined. A level is completed by removing all the marbles.
