Polygon is another fun strategy game from Jax. Play your polygon tiles to create a group of three numbers. The numbers determine the score and the player with the highest score at the end of the game wins!

I agree with the age recommendation (7-adult) for the game because chip placement is challenging. A first time “test-run” game is a good idea to learn the rules. Just match numbers and colors and work toward the highest score. This game uses addition and multiplication skills. A calculator is a good idea at the end of the game to add up all those points. 

The game can be played by 2,3, or 4 players. Or maybe play it as a single player to achieve your highest scoring game.

Polygon contains a folding game board, one die, 49 polygon tiles, and 50 score cards. As with all the Jax games that I’ve reviewed, everything is sturdy and attractive. And fun!

CHIPS!

Roll the dice, then take out the matching chip point total. But don’t get stuck with too many points left over, because the player with the lowest point total wins!! It’s FAST and it’s FUN!

My Review: 

This is my family’s favorite Jax game so far because it’s quick, easy and very entertaining!

This ready-to-play game can be stored in any kitchen drawer or living room end table. It’s small enough to fit in a suitcase pocket for a game on the road or in the air. I especially recommend the little game of Chips at a get-together because it can be played with any number of players (2 or more).  The directions aren’t complicated, it doesn’t require serious concentration, and it can be played anywhere there is a small surface for rolling the dice. The game doesn’t interfere with conversation – it compliments the conversation. It’s big fun coming from a little game in a bag.

Also makes a good home school game for reinforcing early math skills since players need to think through all the possible addition combinations which might be used. 

Strategy Note: Eliminate the higher number chips first!
