The Award Winning Board Games Star

The award winning star board game is a fantastically addictive multiple player game for both kids and adults.


It won the prestigious Mensa Best Mind Game Award in 2007 as well as the Major Fun Award and the Parents Choice Gold Award. This is a great gift for kids aged 6 and up, and even adults will love the thrilling strategies that can be employed.

How the Board Games Star Game Works

The game comes with 36 colorful wooden blocks, or tiles. Each tile has one of six shapes on its face, either a circle, square, diamond, clover, eight-point star, or four-point star. Each shape is also a different color of either red, green, purple, orange blue or yellow.

In the beginning of the game, each player takes six tile. This is their hand. The player with the most shapes and colors in common gets to lay their tiles first. Tiles are laid so that they create line with other tiles that have something in common, either shape or color. Just like in Scrabble, players are trying to add on to other tiles to create a grid, and each line that is laid is awarded points. The player with the most points at the end is the winner.

This game can be played with anywhere from two to four players, and an average game could take forty-five minutes or longer, depending on the strategies used, and speed of the players.

Why The Board Games Star is Great For Everyone

The Board Games Star is fun, exciting and challenging at the same time. Younger children will love it for its colorful shapes, and easy to learn rules. Adults will enjoy the plotting and scheming that can be employed to ensure winning strategies. For young ones that are having trouble with the rules, the game can be played with just three tiles per player to simplify things.

Another great thing about is that it is easy to store, and does not need many extra materials for game play. The tile set comes with a convenient cloth bag so that tiles do not get lost between playing times. All that is needed to play the game is a large surface like a floor or tabletop to place the tiles on. A pen and paper is also required for recording points.
