Place tiles adjacent to each other. Make long chains of colors on the tiles to score lots of points. Work your brain and have fun at the same time.
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!
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.
I just finished playing this game with my twelve year old daughter. This was described as a Mensa game and now I understand why. There are numerous opportunities and avenues for getting a high score, and it takes considerable thinking skills and planning to achieve them. We found it more fun to work together and it seemed most enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it for a thought-provoking experience.
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).
