Best Game we own
December 25, 2008

We bought this game a number of years ago and have never tired of it. It is simple to learn but gets more challenging the more you play. We thought it was pretty expensive but it was worth every penny. It is a cross between checkers and chess but fewer rules. Sometimes we play it as fast as we can like a speed game just to change it up a bit. We have even bought one as a gift for a special friend who loved it. I wish it was still more widely available. We keep searching for another game with the same level of interest and challenge but are disappointed and always go back to playing this one.

I think this is a game great for people 8 through 98!

Bollox is a game I have played for countless hours with family and friends. Everyone I show it to just loves it and wants to keep playing. This is a game that all ages can play and it gets harder and harder as you play but is very easy to learn. There is only two rules! After you play it a while, you develop stratagies and the game gets harder and harder as your competition gets better. I love this game and recommend it to anyone!
