Trappex is a fun game that works on problem solving and strategy skills. Two players take turns placing blocks on a game board. Players use the blocks to make completed squares. If you are the player to complete the square, you get to put a colored chip in the middle of the square. The goal is to get the most chips on the game board while trying to avoid putting blocks in a position that would help your opponent. The game is great for learning to plan ahead and for developing strategic thinking. Our testers ages six to fifty loved this game.

This is a fun game with strong long term play value. Kids of all ages will enjoy playing, and they will keep returning to it as they improve their playing skills and develop new strategies.
