Product Description

Just complete continuous rows of colors from one edge to the other? That sounds easy! Just put this piece here and this one there; and then maybe put another one here... but... oh dear, that won't work either! Hmm, now what? Is this supposed to be easy? Towards the end, it gets more and more difficult to even lay one piece in a logical manner, especially when your opponents are laughing behind your back!

Fun and easy to learn
March 11, 2005
I bought this game in France 4 years ago and have enjoyed it with family, friends and students ever since. It is fun, easy to learn and can be used in a variety of ways as a teaching tool. I have used it with children as young as 6 years old. This is our family's most favorite game to play together.
Simple, addictive, frustrating ... Perfect
February 16, 2004

Rules that can be explained in under a minute, and a game that can be played in less than 10. Ideal for teaching probabilities, and how even the best planning in the world can go horribly horribly wrong.

I've never played this game with someone who didn't like it, and rarely with anyone who thought it was less than genius.

To be fair, it's not backgammon, but then hey, neither's yahtzee... that doesn't mean it's not a fun little diversion every now and then.

An ideal Christmas afternoon kinda game, and not a bad prezzie either.

Simple to play the first time
August 11, 1999

A little planning can go along way. However you are at the mercy of the tiles and no matter how much planning you do, you still may end up with a mess.

The first time I played this game was an exercise in taking chances and hoping they came off. The next couple I learnt that even though my tiles seemed to be placed well the next few ruined it all. Frustrating at times but definitely worth playing many times.

A game to be enjoyed by all ages and all levels of strategy play ability. Scores and winners can reverse at every game.
