I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
My family is turning into serious gamers and that makes my heart happy. We LOVE games of all types and we typically have a family game night once a week after Baby Sis is in bed. We love how it brings us together with no technology and makes us all laugh even through our competitive natures! This week we played Triple Cross from Winning Moves Games. This quick paced game is fun as you try and get 3 in a row but be careful because your opponent can push your piece right off the game board!
- 1 Plastic Triple Cross Tower Unit with Base
- 2 Sets of Plastic Colored Discs (12 orange, 12 Green)
- 8 Plastic Blockers (4 Orange, 4 Green)?
- illustrated instructions
Push in! Push up! Push out! Players engage in head-to-head strategic battle by placing discs in the innovative Triple Cross tower. Your aim is to have more vertical and diagonal ?3-in-a-rows? than your opponent. It may look like you?re all lined up for a win but your opponent's next move could knock a key piece out of the tower. Utilize special blockers to lock in a row and guard your position. Be the boss of Triple Cross!
This is for ages 6+ but there is no reading involved so you might be able to go a year younger for play. You push your piece in on one of the sides but you have to use some strategy because your opponent can push your piece right out of the other side! Play your pieces just right as you can add in blockers to keep a row from being shifted. You have to get as many 3 in a rows that you can. This is all easier said than done which is what makes the game so fun! I think we all like that this is a fast-paced game. On a particular busy day we might not have as much time needed for a traditional family game night but with Triple Cross we can play several rounds.
Winning Moves Games is the place to go to find your family some new games to play. I have always said that games make great gifts because they can be played with friends or family and can be played with all year long! Start up your own weekly game night and make it something your kids look forward to and never forget!
