From the Manufacturer

Exago takes an easy concept of getting four tiles in a row and turns it into one of the best family games ever conceived. Each player is given 6 tiles of their color and takes turns putting them on the board. The goal is to get 4 in a row without your competitors blocking you which seem simple enough. However, the need for strategy for great tile placement becomes extremely obvious quickly. You have to plan each move anticipating what your competitors will do. Exago is a blast to play and you will want to play it over and over again.

Exago is an "abstract strategy" game, the same broad category as chess or Blokus occupies.
Such games are fun only if some elements of strategy become clear to the average player after one or two games. If a new player does not perceive what strategies are available, they quickly get bored and the game gathers dust.
The Exago rule booklet has a small Strategies section, but the section seems inadequate to me. The Strategies section should better explain how a good player beats a weaker player.

In the 2-player version, both players are trying for 5 of their tiles in a straight line. The *obvious* strategies are [A] get 4 in a row with open cells on each end, [B] block your opponent's growing straight line of tiles with one of your tiles, [C] try to suddenly connect two of your non-parallel short lines at a vortex (intersection cell), to suddenly have two threatening lines.
The trouble with these strategies is they are obvious. If this is all both players understand, the game meanders and little thought is needed, little tension is built, players just want the game to end. But...

...Exago would make a better first impression if it explained better the strategies relating to *islands*.
In the games early turns, each new tile is added to the board. Tiles must be placed in a cell that shares a border with another occupied cell. In later turns each player moves or relocates a tile from one cell to another. The vacated cell might create two islands of tile-bunches; and the smaller island pieces are removed from the board. Those removed tiles are eventually returned to the board.

This game isn't as much fun as I had hoped. We are only playing with two players and it seems like the same formations happen. Hoping to give it a try on family game night when we have a player for every color. Might change my mind then, but for two people it is boring

Parents thanked us for it so assume it was well received. Distance precludes us seeing product use in action by recipient.

My kids love this game. It's a fun, simple game of strategy. The pieces are cool and make the game more interesting too.

It's a pretty cool idea for a game and it's made pretty nice, it's just that it isn't very fun to play more than a couple times. The games end up the same and with more people it can get a little confusing. My friends and I play a lot of games (and I mean a lot) and this is one of the few that we've play maybe once or twice and haven't even thought about going back to again. I'm sure it'd be fun for younger kids (we're all in college now), but if you want a real challenging game or one that will keep you engaged, this is not the ideal one for that. It's not a bad game, it just gets old pretty quickly.
