The tagline, "Speedy Strategy, Furiously Fun!" really shouldn't scare off any speed-o-phobes. Although everyone is technically racing to be the first to use all of their tiles, you're so focused on your own tile arrangement that it's hard to get panicky about someone else's. But I'm getting ahead of myself. The game starts with all 114 thick plastic tiles piled face-down in the middle of the table. 2-4 players each draw 24 tiles, and when everyone is ready, they turn them up and start assembling crossword-like configurations. The tiles feature bold white, doodle-y patterns in front of a colored background. You can place them in rows and columns by color or pattern as long as you don't repeat an identical tile (the same pattern and color) in any row. The first player to use all of their tiles grabs for a scoring stick and sits back and watches their fellow players. We all loved it at game night, and I appreciate that you could do this as a solo challenge as well. Jess
