Tantrix is a visual-spacial strategy game and puzzle for 1 to 4 players. It was created in 1988 by former New Zealand backgammon champion Mike McManaway while on a camping holiday in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. The TANTRIX GAME PACK contains 56 unique colour-coded, numbered tiles. These are supplied in an eye-catching and practical travel bag and with a 50 page booklet containing activities to last you a lifetime!
Sort the beads according to each of the 24 challenge cards and turn the wheel whenever necessary. Ready? Then flip over the board & challenge-card and the race starts all over again! A beautiful toy that helps children discover, observe and develop fine motor movement. Ages: 3 years+
The Tantrix Discovery is a progressively challenging solitaire activity to provide the perfect introduction to Tantrix. The concept is simple: Ten tiles numbered on the reverse from 1 to 10. Start with three tiles, then slowly increase the difficulty by adding more tiles - it's guaranteed to hook you. Contains 10 hexagonal tiles in a wood or chrome stand. The Discovery is the best way to learn about Tantrix concepts and improve your spatial skills.
The Hyperspace Cube Zome Tool Kit allows you to experience the 4th dimension first hand! Simple instructions make child's play of the journey from zero to 4 dimensions, using that most familiar shape -- the cube. Build different "flat" cubes, regular cubes and amazing "shadows" from the 4th dimension! The Kit contains 74 parts: 16 white nodes, 12 short blue struts, 24 long blue struts, 2 short yellow struts, 8 medium yellow struts, 8 long yellow struts, and 4 medium red struts, plus detailed instructions. Ages: 6 years +
Bingo with a Zing! A fast-paced, simple variant of Bingo. Players try to fill their image cards with matching tiles from the "Zingo Master"; first player to fill his/her card wins! Rules can be adjusted to favor more or less competition among players and to vary the length of time that each game takes to play. Zingo teaches shape and pattern recognition, as well as observation, and short-term memory.
Tantrix Xtreme is a more fiendish alternative to the Discovery, mainly aimed at keen puzzlers or experienced Tantrix players. It contains eight Discovery-type loop puzzles with an extra twist: no colour clue is given for each level. Two new tricky pyramid puzzles are added that provide an even greater challenge. Your aim is to build loops of various shapes and sizes starting with just three tiles. Each new tile added gives you a different and more challenging puzzle.
