Product Description

In Strata-gem, players strategically form a 3 x 3 grid with the best combinations of cards to score the most points, using cards with the same type of gems, same number of gems or gem cards that form a numeric straight. A player may overlap as often as they want, but at the end of the game, points are scored horizontally, vertically and diagonally in the grid. But don't get your precious jewels snatched away, when opponents attempt to sabotage you with their Gem Thief cards, which will surely keep you on high alert! Put your thinking cap on, stay cool and collected, and you'll be sure to win the game! For 2 to 4 Players Ages 10 to Adult 20 Minute Playing Time Contents: 90 Playing Cards and Instructions in English, Spanish, French & German

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I have a lot of boardgames and try to eliminate anything that I don't play. This one can stay.
I came across it at GenCon, and someone walked by me while I was checking out and said - hey, that's a fun one!
Time to learn: 2 mins. or less
Time to play: Depends on the players, but about 15 mins.
It comes in a small box and is easy to transport and store (could be kept just as a deck of cards).
Basically players arrange cards in a 3 x 3 matrix trying to maximise their own points whilst blocking their opponents.
Easy to for anyone to play. Good for kids math (because they have to add up points for the rows, columns and Xs).
There's certainly a luck factor to it, but it's good as a mental break.
Grandparents can play with their grandkids, etc.
Came on amazon to order one as a gift - current price is $10 including shipping.
