With over 4 million copies sold worldwide, this game is quick to learn but requires a certain skill to make the tactical manoeuvres that score the high points and has been testing players ever since its release, Do you have what it takes to outwit your family?
The rules on how to play:
Firstly, Each player reaches into the bag and takes 6 tiles (Keeping them hidden from the other players),
And secondly, you need to decide the order in which turns are made, from the 6 they have in front of them, players must count the tiles that have either colour or shape in common and announce the greatest total, the player with the highest total is first to play, turns are then played in a clockwise direction. (In the event of a tie the oldest player is the one who plays first).
When it is your turn you have a choice of actions to take, You can add one of your tiles to a line on the board that matches a colour or shape, at which point you then draw another tile from the bag. and your turn is over, however, If it is possible, you may add two or more tiles to that same line, if this happens, you then draw a number of tiles from the bag equal to the amount you used (So that you have 6 again). The other action you can take is a trade, simply place 1 or more tiles into the bag, shake it to shuffle them around and draw a number of tiles equal to the amount you discarded. once either of these actions is taken and the tiles have been drawn, then your turn is over and it passes to the next person.
Scoring and Rules
Each line that is on the board may only consist of one of each colour and shape and every line must have either its colour or shape in common.
