Tri-Cross Strategy Math Game Review


Tri-Cross is a strategic game made by Games for Competitors for ages 10 to adult. It is a challenging game of strategy, critical thinking, and problem solving. Tri-Cross is bound to keep you busy for quite a while- we have thoroughly enjoyed playing this game! It really got our brains working! It can be played with 2-4 players, and varying levels of difficulty depending on the age group.
This game is so in depth and educationally based that it has been spreading through the school systems! Many schools have actually even started “Tri-Cross Clubs” and “Tri-Cross Tournaments” to encourage their students to play this strategic game! The rules are pretty complicated simply because there are a lot of them! But it is definitely worth the time and effort to learn them.
The first few times we played Tri-Cross we just kept the instruction manual right next to the board to remind us how to play. I am very glad that I found out about this game- we will definetely be pulling this game out very often! If you want to play a challenging game that makes you think and use strategy- this is definitely a game for you!
Do you teach a middle or high school class? You need this game in your classroom! In fact, Games for Competitors wants you to understand this game so much that they actually have a special site for teachers where you can get help from them to completely understand the game! Here is the Educator’s Link.
So how do you play? Since the rules are pretty detailed, I decided to upload a video from Games for Competitors for you to explain the rules. I’m a visual learner and this was easier for me to understand!

Tri-Cross has won a variety of awards including Dr. Toy’s 2009 100 Best Children’s Products to Creative Child Magazine’s Creative Toy Awards, 2008 Game of the Year, and the National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval.
I definitely recommend this game to any teachers who have middle/high school classes, anyone who has tweens & teens at home, or even just a game to play among adults! This game is extremely challenging and definitely worth the effort to learn!
I was not compensated for this review. I did receive a free game to try. All opinions are 100% mine.
