In the box: 1 plastic grid playing board, 21 pieces per color, four colors (84 total pieces)
Ages 7+, 2-4 players
A fun game for the whole family - simple to learn and challenging enough to engage young and old alike. Each player will start with 21 pieces of the same color. Each piece is a different shape. Taking turns, each player lays one piece at a time on the plastic playing board. There is only one rule for laying the pieces on the board: Each piece must touch a piece of the same color already on the board, but only at the corners. Try to spread out so that you have a lot of options for laying pieces while trying to block your opponent(s) into a limited space.
|All pieces of a single color can only come into contact with each other at their corners.|
- Play alone with one color to get used to placing the pieces corner to corner.
- Play a game and count the number of corners that are touched.
- Play a game with the person learning the game and think your strategy out loud as you play so that they can learn how to use strategy.
- Ask the person to turn the piece in-hand if it needs to be adjusted for orientation.
