Reminiscent of one of our favorite childhood strategy games that involve connecting one's own pieces while blocking the opponent's in a grid, we love this wood toy because it is just as enjoyable to stack the tracks collaboratively in different patterns.
Rules and scoring suggestions are included - but we're a big fan of the collaborative approach. Stacking the tracks has an almost meditative quality and it's quickly became our "go-to" birthday gift for young children.
The base is made from American cherry wood and the tiles are made from Vermont maple; both are finished with teak oil. Six extra tiles are included, for endless combinations. Tiles are double sided.
The game measures about 10" long, 7" tall and 3" wide and includes a cotton storage pouch.
