Sturdy plastic playing pieces in an attractive tin box make the game indestructable and easy to carry along for traveling.
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.
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.
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.

I have an older game that came in triangle tin-type box. This came in a much smaller rectangle box. No big deal, triominos are the same.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
