This isn't an amazing game, but I played it 11 times in June and no one else logged any plays. That being said, this is a lot better than a roll and go game. The one major thing that Stixx has going for it is that it is a really cool way to teach young kids how to play abstract strategy games. It doesn't require reading, is short and easy to pick up (my six and three year old played), and won't bore you to tears like Candyland or Chutes and Ladders.

In a nutshell, you secretly pick a color, and then lay a bunch of colored sticks on a board. Each turn, you can: collect a stick connected to a grey marker stick, reveal your color and collect two sticks, or guess another player's color and collect two sticks. That's it. The last part adds a bluff element to the game. The winner is the player with the most stixx of their secret color at the end of the game. Tie breakers go to the player with the most sticks of one other color, and then (if still tied) to whomever revealed their secret color last, either by choice or by an opponent's correct guess.

There are a number of abstract gaming principles that kids can learn along the way.

1) You not only need to collect your color, but also not let your opponents guess your color.

2) You need to think two or three moves ahead, e.g. if I take this stick, then my opponent will probably take this one, and I'll be able to get a hold of that one.

3) You need to keep track not only of how many stixx you have in your primary color, but also one other color.

4) Sometimes stealing an opponent's color is more important that collecting your own color.

5) You need to know the optimal time to reveal your own color.

I picked this up at a store closing and am glad that I did. If you have young ones and see this for cheap, it is a fair deal better than Barbie jigsaw puzzles and games with spinners. We've moved forward to Yinsh now. Chess awaits!

Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me, you guys.... They can't all be gems, ratings or lyrics-wise. I was willing to take a chance on it for the low price and colorful bits. $1.99 from Goodwill.

Collect sticks in your color, be it purple or orange (or something else). Color selection is secret, though.
