Brixbrings a new dimension to noughts and crosses, with players building a wall of X and O bricks by stacking their pieces on top of each other. The first player to align four of their symbol or colour in a row wins the game. This game offers lots of development opportunities for visuo-spatial skills, problem solving, focus and fine motor skills. The degree of complexity can be graded to extend skills as needed.
In more detail, the bricks are effectively two cubes pushed together, with half the brick being orange and the other half blue; when an orange face shows an X, the blue face shows an O and vice versa. So you have to watch out! Each time you add a new piece, you risk helping your opponent win the game! If no one has won by the time that all bricks are in the wall, then on their turn players remove one brick and place it in a new location; if you knock the wall over on your turn, you lose.
The winning condition can be changed depending on how challenging you want the game to be: (1) Connecting four squares of your colour OR four of your symbol; (2) Connecting four squares of your colour AND four of your symbol; or (3) Connecting four squares of any colour AND four of any symbol.
This game is for 7 years + and takes approx. 10 minutes to play.
