There's just one rule: each piece you play must touch at least one other piece of the same color, but only at the corners! It takes less than a minute to learn but has depth to challenge your whole family. Each player gets a set of 21 pieces - red, blue, green, or yellow - then takes turns placing them on the board. The goal is to fit the most pieces on the board. The game ends when no one can place any more pieces. Everyone counts the squares in their unplayed pieces and the player with the lowest score wins!

I have played this game with "kids" from 10 to 85. I have yet to play with someone who doesn't want to play again! It is an excellent strategy game that can be very easily learned. The more I play, the better I get. No two games are alike, and beginners absolutely have a chance to win over seasoned players. The game for two can be played in about 20 minutes; the game for four takes longer, but is a great game, as well. The only downside to the game is that pieces are easily lost (especially when playing with younger kids). It is important to count that you have all 21 pieces before putting the game away!
I bought this game a few years ago for my 10 year old nephew, we enjoyed playing it so much that I bought my family one because we missed playing it when we got home. Now we have one at home, one at Grandma and Pap's and one at my sisters house so we are never without it. We have been playing it for 3 years, never dull! They have several board shapes and they are all fun. My niece is 5 and plays it all the time with us and the grandparents love it too! The first reviewer is right, the only thing wrong with the game is you may lose some pieces so you have make sure they are all there as you are putting it away.
