The game is very quick and simple to learn, and you will be playing before you know it. The game includes 27 nicely crafted tiles which have random walls placed throughout the tiles (each tile divided into 4 segments). The players shuffle the tiles and draw 10 tiles creating a 3x3 box with 2 tiles which off-shoot the square to create each player's starting piece/home tile. The goal of the game is to get your 4 jewels from your start piece to your opponent's start piece (or your home tile). Each player takes 3 actions a turn and can choose from either of these: moves a jewel (or also referred to as a stone), rotates a tile, or shifts a tile. The player must move at least one jewel during their turn.
Being able to rotate the tile pieces and shift them reminded me of The aMAZEing Labyrinth board game (Day 16), and players are allowed to jump over other stones like in Chinese Checkers (and the whole concept of moving your stones to your opponent's starting area as well). If you like The aMAZEing Labyrinth and Chinese Checkers, I think that you will enjoy this game. The game can also be adapted or changed to your liking. Because the game comes with 27 tiles, you can create a bigger starting board and the game will be different each time.Read more ›
We decided to play it once and soon realised that it was more complex and varied and a fair amount of thought and strategy could be used
We enjoyed it alot
My boys are gifted so they need games that will occupy them (their favorites are Settlers of Catan and Khet). This game was rated by Mensa, so that is what initiated my purchase.
It's not overly complicated so that the average person can enjoy playing it too! ;)

This is a great game for two. While it can be a children's game, it is fun for adults as well. Take it out of the tin box and put it in a plastic bag, and it travels well. Read morePublished 6 months ago by lisle_g
I really enjoy playing this game. It is easy to learn and fun for all ages. I love the fact that the game board changes with each game. My family plays it over and over!Published 14 months ago by e.d.e.

It doesn't seem like one has much control over winning the game. It is more dependent on the tiles near your home square.Published 22 months ago by Paul Kulas
This was on my granddaughter's birthday list for her 9th birthday. She loves it and my daughter approves of it.Published on August 10, 2013 by Gail Ward
Great game. Enjoy this with my Grandkids. Can be simple, or can learn some strategies and it becomes more challenging. Fun, and I like the jewels (game pieces).Published on June 1, 2013 by J. Mannel
