Fall 2010 Games
Ages: 8 & Up
Manufacturer: ThinkFun, Inc.
Price: $19.99

Trango is a game in which two to four players take turns linking together triangular pieces to form shapes (ranging from a simple 4-piece triad to a 10-piece spade) while simultaneously blocking others from doing the same. The game requires pattern recognition on a mixed-up playing field and strategic thinking to prepare for the next big design. 2-player games move swiftly; 4-player games take longer but leave more opportunities for surprising moves. The game is conceptually simple but challenging in practice, making it quick to learn but still a potential long-term family favorite.
