Triominos De Luxe Gaming Fun
Triominos De Luxe is the fascinating game variation of the well-known game of dominos, but with triangular pieces, and what a great game it is I must say! I do love a normal game of dominos, but the new Triominos De Luxe from Ideal has taken over to be my favorite of the two!
What’s in the box
Inside the box reveals :-
4 Triomino holding stands
56 solid triangular tiles
On first opening I was very impressed with the quality of the Triominos, they are very high standard but as simple as you need them to be.
How to play Triominos De Luxe
The object of the game is to score as many points as possible by joining your Triominos, the game is suitable for 2 to 4 players, so lots of fun to have.
You start by each selecting a single Triomino from the pile, who ever selects the Triomino with the highest total (by adding the three numbers together) will start the game.
Place all the Triominos face down and depending on the amount of players playing, you pick up your Triominos as required, 2 players you will need to pick up 9 Triominos to start, or if there are more players then you start with 7.
The player who had the highest total earlier begins by placing one of their Triominos down. Each subsequent player tries to put down one of their Triominos by matching and joining their own tile to the ones on the board. If you manage to join your Triomino you then score the amount of points presented on it.
Bonus points can be won by laying your pieces and making a ‘bridge’, a ‘hexagon’ or a ‘double hexagon’.
If you are unable to place a Triomino down, you must ‘buy’ a Triomino, you can then play this in the same turn. For every Triomino bought, you must subtract 5 points from your score.
If a player has placed down their last Triomino, this is then the ‘bell’ for the last round. This player scores a bonus 25 points, plus the total of the Triomonis that the other players still have in their possession. The player with the highest number of points is the winner!
Every Triomino is unique because it only occurs once in the game so it must be used wisely to gain an extra score. Who can score the highest number of points to be the winner?
Triominos De Luxe is a game which requires insight, strategy and logic, providing great fun for all the family! Although the game is aimed at age 6+, Grace is 4 and she loves it and know what to do, with a bit of guided help she is really good!
I would completely agree that this game is for the whole family, we have played with my children, myself and Nanna Jane, and each of us have had great enjoyment with the game from one to the next and is a game that I really can’t wait to play again.
Did you know that April 28th was National Table Top Day? We had a great day playing lots of games and having contests to see who would win overall through out the day. I’m pleased to say that I won, so surprised, but it was close with Jake. It really was a fun family day that I plan to repeat during the summer when we can play games in the garden. We played games to suit Jake and Grace during the day, then got the games more suited to us out at night, like Othello.
John Adams/Ideal Games do a great range of table top games for all the family to enjoy.
Triominos De Luxe is available to purchase from Amazon. I thought it was great fun and we’ve had some great games.
