    CrossWise is an abstract strategy game for 2 players or teams that will have you thinking in all directions.

You'll have to think ahead because every tile you place also scores points for your opponent! Plan ahead for a double play, shift shapes to block your opponent, and trade tiles to earn big points. Watch out though - Action tiles let players move tiles unexpectedly! The game is over as soon as the last open space on the board has been filled with a tile. The player or team with the most points wins CrossWise.

  • QwirkleQwirkle
    Combining tactical maneuvers and well-planned strategy, Qwirkle is a game that has players mixing and matching colors and shapes to score and win. The game consists of 108 thick wooden blocks with six shapes in six colors. Players score points by building lines that share a common attribute - either a color or a shape. Although the game is quickly learned, it soon becomes apparent that strategic thinking is crucial to scoring high. The challenge of Qwirkle is logical and clear enough to engage kids but complex enough to appeal to adult competitors. The player with the highest score after all of the tiles are placed wins the game!
  • Qwirkle CubesQwirkle Cubes
    Qwirkle Cubes is a twist on the award winning game of Qwirkle. As in Qwirkel, players try to score points by building lines that share a common attribute - either a color or a shape. In Qwirkle Cubes however, players have more control over their hands because they can roll and re-roll their dice to try to get the shapes they need! Everyone can see what is in each others hands so players' offensive and defensive planning will change constantly. When you create a line, you score points for each cube in that line. If you add to an existing line, you score points for all cubes in that line as well. Complete a line of six cubes to make a Qwirkle and score six bonus points! The player with the highest score when all the cubes are used up wins the game.
  • Qwirkle Travel SizeQwirkle Travel Size
    Travel size Qwirkle plays just like the award-winning original. It is as simple as matching colors and shapes -- but it takes both luck and strategy to win! Create rows and columns by matching tiles with the same symbol or color. Match both for maximum points. Create a line of all six and you score a Qwirkle! Fun for all ages and now the perfect size to take anywhere!
  • TribbitTribbit
    Tribbit is a fun exercise in visual discrimination. The frogs on the 112 cards have a number of similarities in their fashionable outfits -- maybe it's their canes or their vests or the hats perked jauntily atop their heads. Players are each dealt 16 frog cards. Which frogs have vests? Glasses? Spot the traits and sort the frogs into sets of three. Think a frog belongs in the "moustache" mix? You might need to think again and group him with the cane-carrying crew to complete more sets. Players need to spot all these similarities and strategize how to sort them to create the most sets of three to earn tokens and win the game.
