This is a really fun game. The chips are very well made and the bag is compact and well made. I have a family of 3 that plays, and we are always disappointed when we are out of chips and the game ends. So I bought a second set to add to the first set. It has been years since I bought the first set, and I was a little worried that the new set would not match the old set exactly – but it does.
Just so you know, adding 2 sets of this game together actually makes the game a little confusing and you have to spend a little more time checking every playable spot to very chip in your hand. But this does not deter us – just makes it a little more challenging play.
There is a good instruction booklet included that shows many solitaire games to play also. They are very challenging to complete.
I am happy with owning this game and would recommend it.
All of the people I played with progressed to the "real" tantrix game. It's intriguing, and takes 45+ minutes to play. Very enjoyable, but I have less experience with it just because of the time commitment.
The puzzles are what sold me on this product in the first place - they can really fascinate puzzle workers. Actually, I'm not a puzzle fanatic, but these games still caught my interest. It's when working through the puzzles that I realized just how well designed this game is. There are only 56 tiles, but the design provides a wide range of fun puzzles and games. The only complaint I have is that it's so well designed that I think it would lose utility if you lost any of the 56 tiles. So you have to be careful.
I endorse this game unreservedly for high school age through adult.
The game is very easy to learn, and my 7 year-old great-nephew loves it. The game seems simple and can certainly be played that way. However, there is the potential for more sophisticated strategy here that will appeal to adults who want something more challenging. Best played with 3 or 4, but can also be played with 2.
I first played the game with a young couple visiting the US from Denmark. They had combined two games into one extra-large one and it made for a longer, more challenging game for adults. Not sure if the combined games were 2 this size, or 1 this size together with a smaller version, but I'm surprised the sellers haven't pointed out that you can do this.
Have given this game as a gift several times and the recipients were delighted to receive a new game that they hadn't heard of. You're not likely to find it at a mall store or a big box store.
Now that I have had it for several days, I have come to the conclusion that TANTRIX: DISCOVERY GAME PACK stands alone in concept, and is extremely ADDICTING!!! I no sooner finish one solitary puzzle, and I'm on to the next! And believe me, when you add the next piece to the pile, the difficulty of the puzzle goes up as well!
So pull up a pot of hot chocolate or coffee, and settle in for a long winter's night with TANTRIX!!!Family Games tantrix discovery game pack
