Review:
The object is to claim the most territory on the game board by strategically placing one's own color geometric shapes on the grid. Each set of game pieces contains 21 different shapes representing from one to five squares connected at various angles. Players take turns placing pieces on the board, following only two rules. Each new piece must touch at least one other piece of the same color, but only at the corners; and no flat edges of the same colored piece can touch. The game ends when neither player can make another move, and the winner is the one who has covered more squares on the board.

The well-illustrated instruction sheet includes helpful strategy tips. This game meets the essential criteria for a travel game: the simple rules take less than a minute to learn; a game rarely lasts more than 20 minutes; and the compact packaging keeps each player's pieces separate and ready for instant play.
