If you find dominoes too simple and geometrically uninspiring, the game Triominoes adds another angle to the game by subtracting one. Instead of a four-sided gaming piece with two numbers, Triomonies are three-sided and sport three numbers. The game play is similar, although you're forced to match up twice the number of figures and the math's slightly more complex. The amount of skill required's pretty low, which is why it was a favorite game around the Hardigree household when I was young and not quite up for the intense games of Scrabble my grandma would eventually challenge me to. There wasn't much skill went into 's about the , but it did make me laugh.
This version of the classic game has three distinctive features. The unusual, and eye-catching triangular-shaped box sets it apart from any other game. The Triominos themselves are made of high-quality, hefty urea and feature a brass spinner in the centre for an upscale look. Finally, one-piece racks add to the deluxe quality of the set.
Triominos combines strategy, luck and exciting new challenges every time you play, making it a perfect game for children to meet adult competitors without being disadvantaged.
It features sturdy plastic Triomino tiles with big, easy-to-read numbers and large print, easy to follow instructions. Players score points by matching numbers on the three-sided playing pieces to pieces already in play, you score according to the value of the numbers on your piece .
