Easy to play, hard to master, but always fun!!!
on August 30, 2009
I bought this in a bookstore as a small game for a family trip, as it seemed fun and easy to carry. I never thought we would be playing it every week!!! The game is really easy to understand, my 5 year-old nephew was able to play with a little bit of coaching. You can play from 1 to 4 players, but 2-3 is the best. Each player has a stack of magnets that needs to be placed on 4 triangular mats. The 4 mats let you change the overall shape and difficulty. Each player places one magnet per turn. If your magnet attracts other magnets you collect the bundled magnets. Like previously said, its' fairly easy to play, but there are many tricks to master. You can push magnets with yours to make room, place the magnet standing up to increase their magnetism (beats me how that works!). I am glad the game is on Amazon now, as my kid's friends were asking me to get them one. Clear instructions and good packaging. Only downside is that the magnets are shaped differently and some are harder to position.
