Product Description

MOD X is a fun and easy to learn abstract strategy game where your goal is to create patterns with color pieces (red, black, yellow and orange) to score points towards victory! The game features 14 game pieces for each player and 18 score markers in four colors. Each player takes turns placing their pieces on the game board in an attempt to creating a scoring pattern (either an "X", a "plus sign (+)", or "5 in a row"), all while attempting to block your opponents from doing the same thing. Creating a scoring pattern gets you points, and the first player to reach a certain number of points (determined by the number of players) wins the game!

Fun Family Game
July 31, 2015

MOD X is fun to play as a two player game, but it is just as fun as a three and four player game. When playing with three or four players, table talk naturally enters into the game to strategize how to block or take away a few points from the leading player, while all the time planning how to sneak up with a winning pattern of your own that cannot be stopped. As strategizing table talk occurs all players quickly learn how to improve their game strategy, and that making a pattern to score first is not always the best strategy to win in a three or four player game.

MOD X is very addicting, because the variety of ways to score points by making the X, Plus, Five-in- a-row, combination, or instant win patterns, seem almost endless, in addition to the many ways a player can block or take away points from a player. MOD X is one of the very few abstract strategy games on the market that can be played with more than two players, and is also one of the rare game that seem almost impossible to outgrow, because with each strategy mastered a new one seems to be discovered.

Only negative. For some people, the red and orange X pieces in low light can be a bit hard to distinguish, but in a well lit room, no problem.

MOD X is a fun family abstract strategy game and I highly recommend it.

P.S. 15 and up is the age recommendation, but a sharp seven or eight year old could easily learn the rules of MOD X.

Mod X video review
February 26, 2015

Mod X is a deceptive-looking game that packs a lot of fun and strategy into a small package! The game seems to combine connect 4 and tic tac toe, and pump it full of steroids! The result is an abstract strategic game for 2-4 players. The goal of the game is to score a certain amount of points by completing patterns with your pieces. Beware though because you can lose points just as fast as you earn them, if other players happen to make patterns on squares previously scored by you. The implementation of Wild pieces adds another layer of depth to the game as you use them to help you win. Please follow the link to the video review in order to get a better idea on how this fantastic game is played! Don’t forget to like and subscribe to the channel :) 7O618rI&index=8&list=PLZDFcudB09O5GczGRoJ9pwoBEo9RnqUVD
