With a tag line that reads, ‘The game that brings out the artist in you’, the Mozaa game is a fun addition to the all-age-games that characterize cherished family moments…

Conceptualized by Dutch product designer Renske Solkesz, and published by BIS Publishers, the handy-pack game is a superb travel attraction to begin with.

The gaming rules are very simple, the visual feel vivid, and the dynamics exciting, as the game moves along. As one can easily gather from the self-explanatory cover-image, it is an edge-matching game with four colour options; meaning, a game for 2-4 players that eggs you on to make as large a colour field as you can, to be the winner. Enroute, you pit your options on winning, sabotaging your opponents’ chances, playing favourites at times or even missing several turns… as you match the edge of your card with that of the pattern being created on the table.

It comes with 2 variations but can be interestingly improvised upon, depending upon your enthusiasm. Play with several cards in your hand, and Mozaa becomes more strategic. Play with personal colours, and working together is rewarded. Mozaa comes in the same league as Mosaic and Dominoes, playing on the thrill of the puzzle genre.

A fun pass time for all age groups, Mozaa comes in a hard cover box with 64 cards (tiles), each with a unique colour combination. Whatever strategy you choose, and whether you win or lose, the end result will always be a different and beautiful mosaic pattern.

A must-mention: good textural quality and comfortable slant-pick packaging inlay adds on to the feel-good factor.
