Better than chess!
on 15 February 2014
Absolutely brilliant board game. Easily my favourite, and I've played it about 20 times now.
It's very original, It will make you think. It is great fun for adults and children alike. The build quality is outstanding. The ability to make pretty shapes is just more entertainment to an already incredible package. An easy to learn but difficult to master game, this will keep you hooked for a long time as it feels like you are always learning a new facet of how it's played. You will be thinking up of new strategies all the way through, every time.
I have just one minor complaint. Unlike in the Kickstarter videos, the board in this edition is transparent, meaning you'll probably need to place something dark-coloured underneath. I use a spare piece of cloth.
Overall, this is the cream of the crop of board game design. Without a doubt, it is the greatest abstract puzzle/strategy game since the chess and go families of board games. It is more competitive and more exciting than both.
