Timberdoodle's Review
Quixo Travel Size
A Parents' Choice Gold Award Winner and a Mensa Select Winner, Quixo Travel Size is one of the few strategic games played by 2 or 4 players. Quixo is a simple game: players choose a cube from the perimeter, place it on the opposite end of the row/column, and shift the entire row/column. When one player manages to create a 5-in-a-row, they win! Because all turns result in a row/column sliding, the playing surface changes with each move. Every play in Quixo can be either offensive or defensive, but the best actions are both. This results in a battle of wits, with each player carefully considering the implications of every move.

Playing with four players requires even more strategic thinking. When doing so, players split into teams of 2 and sit opposite their teammates. When it's a player's turn, they can choose either a blank cube or one showing their symbol - as long as the dot is on their side. That dot can make a huge difference in how the game plays out. Instead of just watching the symbols, players must also pay attention to which of their team's cubes they'll be able to move on their turn. Likewise, players need to evaluate which way they want to orient their cube when placing it. Do they want the dot to face them or their teammate?

While games of tic-tac-toe can often end in a draw, that is nearly impossible with Quixo. Easily learned by all, Quixo is a perfect coffee table game with its attractive wooden blocks. Each game plays relatively quickly, though few participants are satisfied with just one round!
