Review:
Bring order out of chaos in this game of rearranging a randomly positioned assortment of colored tiles into rows of a single color. First, 35 tiles in seven colors are placed in rows on the game console, making sure that no row contains same color tiles adjacent to each other. Two players compete to get five tiles of one color in a row. In order to transport tiles from one row to another, two sliding platforms are used to slide one or more tiles off their original area and transport them to another row where they are unloaded. A player scores one point for each single-color row he completes, and the winner is the one who has completed the most rows. Although the instructions say the game is for two players, there's no reason why four players couldn't compete as two cooperating teams. Or, for that matter, one person can practice strategic moves by solo play.
