Triominos is that rare game that's equally fun for adults and for kids. The kids will gain addition skills without realizing they're learning; they will also sharpen observational skills and visualization of shapes/positions. Excitement builds as that rare forty- or fifty-pointer is discovered, but "Oh!!" the numbers are backward! It doesn't fit! Or those moments when there is finally a place to play that difficult triple number but "Aieee!" The player before you took that place and you're still stuck! Outstanding fun and competition!
Sturdy plastic playing pieces in an attractive tin box make the game indestructable and easy to carry along for traveling.

this is a game that involes adding scores and paying attention to conbinations of numbers .I have found it very interesting to play with 10 -16 year old grandchildren and also a great passtime for my own friends

I bought this for my mother in law and everyone that comes to visit her has to play before they are allowed to leave. The game is very challenging and it is so much fun it keeps you thinking and studying your pieces for a good move and hope that someone else doesn't take it before your turn. If you want a good time get this game it is well worth the money. The tin that it comes in is really nice and the little spinners in the peices are a plus when you need to scramble the pieces.

Fun game to play with 2 or 3 total people. Tiles are sturdy, the tin is good enough, and instructions/scoring is simple.
Minor Con: The version I played (before buying my own) came in a box, not a tin, and had two-tier tile holders. This version in the tin does NOT include those holders. My mistake for not realizing this difference.
Still, a fun game that takes 10-20 minutes per round.

I discovered this game years ago... and every person I've ever played it with has liked it so much that I have ended up buying it for them as a gift. It is simple but not boring, and easy to pack and take with you on vacations --- it is a staple on all of our trips! Great for kids (6+ or so) and adults alike --- easy way to gather people around a table. You can get a cheaper version with lightweight hollow-back tiles, but I really like the heft of these solid domino-like tiles... I paid more than $20 for the first sets of these I bought years ago --- worth every penny! --- so getting them at this price is crazy good :)

Our family loves playing this game. When I took it to a family game night, everyone wanted to play it because "we have that in our house, but we never knew how to play it." I also felt like it was a good math and visual tool for my 7-year-old son.

Now the reason it only got 3 stars is because the tiles are imperfect. You put the tiles in a pile and mix them around, face down. This causes the writing to not stay on well. Seems like the company, knowing that this is part of the rules, should have designed it more robust. Secondly, some of the tiles are not flat on the back. There are imperfections that once you have played the game a couple of times, you can cheat by knowing what numbers are on those marked tiles.

I would definitely recommend the game, but find a higher quality set.

Our family LOVES Triominos and the tin box makes it easy to take the game with us when we go places together. If you've never played Triominos, it is like dominoes but with three sides that can be matched, giving one many more options at first, then only limited options a tiles are used up. It would be a little complicated for those under age 10, but pre-teens, teens, and adults would find it enjoyable.

We initially played Tri-Ominos at a B&B we were staying at and enjoyed it enough to buy this version when we got home. We play it pretty frequently and enjoy it quite a bit; however, we did not care for the tedium of the score keeping and found it distracting from our enjoyment of the game. Keeping score by the official rules is too much a hassle (in our opinion).

We devised a simplified approach that makes the game move along faster and more enjoyably. We simply quit scoring based on the numbers on the tiles. We play to go out, by matching tiles appropriately, or, if neither can, to have the least number of tiles in your rack at the end of play. We ignore the special bonus scores as well. We are toying with one variation that we might adopt permanently. That is when one player forms a closed hexagon, the opponent has to draw an extra tile.

Our dumbed down version is not what the developer intended and may not suit many, but it keeps us coming back to this game frequently. If we maintained the official scoring we would have abandoned it by now.
