Boxing Match

Inspired by the geometric figures of modern art, this clever game will have you discovering patterns within intricately arranged series of colorful rectangles. Played over several rounds, the players' goal is to get rid of their cards by arranging them into series. They pick out a color, and lay out cards where the shapes in that color move in sequence through the jumble. Designed for 2 to 6 players age 8 and up, it is simple enough for children to learn but offers plenty of challenge for adult players. Comes with easy to follow, illustrated instructions. It's a game of strategy and luck that will sharpen your observational skills while whetting your will to win. Made in China.

        I play this game with my children ages 18, 13, 12 and we all love it. The game requires you to use sequencing and color to win...and that is not as easy as it may seem. This game is beautifully packaged and makes a great gift!

          CUBU Tillywig WInner

          Comments about CUBU GAME:

          From Review for 2012 Tillywig Toy Brain Child Award Winner

          Playing CUBU is like thinking in several languages at once, albeit ones in which we're firmly grounded from a young age - size, color, position, and direction. It certainly gets your brain moving, requiring players to create sequences by adding cards from their hands to ones already in play. Each CUBU card contains multiple rectangles of varying size and color, nested within one another like Russian dolls. Players take turns creating sequences using the color and position of any rectangle they choose as a starting point. You score points by being first to rid your hand of cards, so the trick is in choosing the one that will allow you to play the most cards. For example, if you see that the 3rd rectangle from the center is red, you could either play a card from your hand that has a red rectangle 2nd from center or one with red 4th from center. Inspect your entire hand to see which direction would be a better choice, since you can't change direction in the middle of a turn. The deck also contains action cards that throw curve balls and can wreak havoc on players' progress. You can also play SPEED CUBU, a faster free-for-all in which players race head-to-head instead of taking turns. Either way, you're in for thrilling competition and a full-brain workout!
