A creative & challenging board game that will leave kids (& even adults) fascinated by the beauty of geometry. The game consists of sticks of three different lengths - 3, 4 and 5 units long. Use these to try and create geometric shapes. Based on the size and type of shape, you earn points. Sounds simple? Not quite. Firstly, you don't get to choose the sticks - it is determined by a randomly chosen card. Secondly, you can use only two sticks per turn! Creating a shape using only two sticks is impossible. Hence you have to use your two sticks along with the ones that the other players may have placed on the board. That is where the game turns highly creative. Which two sticks will you use? Where will you place them? Think creatively to win.
What Makes it Hot Diggity Great:
So challenging ... but so much fun! This game teaches geometry and logic. I've got to admit, it was really difficult for me, but for my 10-year-old daughter, it was a snap. This takes the pencil-and-paper Dots and Boxes game to a whole new level.
