What It Is

My 18-year-old-daughter calls this "Best Game Ever!" And she's right: This is probably the best game you never heard of. In 2003, it was voted Europe's Game of the Year. It's really easy to play: Each player must begin at one of the corners of the board, The order of play is blue, yellow, red, green, Each new piece that is placed on the board must touch another piece of the same color, but it can only touch at the corners, never along the sides. If you can't play a tile, you miss a turn. When you run out of tiles, you win. There is so much strategy, yet it's so simple to play. You'll be amazed at how engrossed kids get in this game that's basically so simple. You will, too. While you can play with fewer than four people, this game is best when played by four.
