Review:
The goal is to form the most three-in-a-row alignments on the game board grid. At each turn a player rolls four dice and places his marker where the row whose number matches the total of two red dice intersects the column matching the sum of two blue dice. If the same-color dice are doubles, the player can pick any vacant square along the other required row or column. Every row of three scores one point; two or more new rows formed during the same move each earn a point. If the square you have landed on already contains a marker, you have two choices: re-roll the dice, or battle the other player for the square (high score after three dice rolls wins). The loser’s marker is taken out of play. Testers liked the easy-to-learn rules and the many strategic possibilities.
