COLORS – the new two person strategy game by MAG (creators of CAVEMAN) - is very simple in its mechanics.
Colors is a 10 minute light-hearted game between two beginners, but becomes a 40 minute intellectual tussle when played by two COLORS “Grandmasters”
Each player has 12 pieces, 3 of each primary color (the game is environment friendly). These pieces are moved around a diamond shaped board made up of triangles, and there is no luck involved.
You take opponents pieces by creating triangles of the 3 primary colors – taking 1 piece if using two of your pieces to complete the triangle, or 2 opposing pieces if you make a triangle using only 1 of your pieces (the elusive “Double Take”).
Combine several mini-strategies to win the game – The Wall, The Blitz, The Raid, the Single take, the Double Take. There is lots to think about.
Despite this the game has just a single page of rules – nothing more to it than that – and has this in eleven difrferent languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish and Japanese)
