Fun, Light Visual Game
August 06, 2004

Fun (and sort of classic) visual thinking game, though without any of the tension or energy of Set or Bongo!, since players just sit around when it is not their turn and the random draw means there is no opportunity for any plannig or strategy (or even much in the way of tactics).

 
 
 
 
 
excellent visual-thinking game
February 02, 2001

I do math enrichment tutoring with gifted kids ranging in age from 7 to 13. We spend the last few minutes playing a game--this one is everybody's favorite. It is a snap to learn to play, but developing strategies is not such a snap. The game lends itself to helping your opponent, and even my very competitive young charges will point to a better move for me when they see one!

 
 
 
 
 
Adaptable to many levels, ages, and degrees of concentration
May 21, 2000

This has been a handy set of tiles to have on hand whenever children and boredom threaten to mix. It's a simple game, elegantly presented, and perfect for what it is.

We have played it both competitively and cooperatively (or 'multi-person solitaire'). It's been a pastime while waiting in restaurants, a side activity to occupy children while adults are conversing (and also playing), and a cutthroat game in parallel with Scrabble, with the turn of one game following the other.

With small children, simplify scoring to just counting the squares along contacting edges.
