Color Stix is a game that can be brought along and played almost anywhere. The game can be as long or quick as you want it to be. Players separate the sticks into bunches, and take turns trying to match up colors (think: dominos) into little rectangles of color before the timer runs out. Points are tallied, and play moves on. This is a game that can be played with two or more players, and is equally challenging for 5-year-olds as it is for parents. The timer adds an exciting aspect to the game, and the many colors on each stick make for lots of mind-bending fun. The sturdy wooden design and bright colors make this game appealing, long-lasting and well worth the money.
