Trick-Tac-Toe Review (Cortex Toys)

What It Is

Trick-Tac-Toe, from Cortex Toys, includes one game board and is recommended for ages 5+. Trick-Tac-Toe combines the home-sport of Flip Bottle with the classic game of Tic Tac Toe. We're using 8-oz water bottles. There are a few ways to play, but mostly, you are trying to land these water bottles into the 9 holes in the board. Full bottles drop well, but you might want to use less water when flipping. Play classic style tic tac toe, or mix it up with frantic Flip Flush where players all flip at once for the most holes scored, or W-A-T-E-R, which is similar to the basketball game of H-O-R-S-E. Once you've mastered the bigger-holed side, flip the board for a tougher challenge. Trick-Tac-Toe is cute and we had some fun playing, but I'm not sure if it's something I would play often. After all, the game is mostly about the water bottles and creative flippers can find their own ways of playing, with or without the game board. But if you do have a big-time Bottle Flipper in your life, it might be time to Trick, Tac and Toe.

Is It Fun?
Yes, but creating your own flip bottle challenges can provide as much enjoyment.
