Take It to the Limit!
|Suggested Age||10 and up|
Take it to the Limit is an advanced version of Take it Easy!. Compared to the original game the boards are bigger in terms of the number of hexagonal spaces. There are 64 tiles in each set, with four different colors running in each direction. These tiles are subdivided evenly into ‘moon’ tiles and ‘sun’ tiles. There are also a number of Gold and Silver bonus tiles. If you complete scoring rows in all three directions through these tiles, then you can also add the bonus values to your total!
The individual playing boards are double-sided, so you can choose to play on the challenging ‘Nexus’ board (45 minutes), or on the stylish Orchid board for a quicker and distinctly different game (25 minutes).
When playing on the Nexus board, all 64 tiles are used. You can enhance your score by skillful use of the Gold and Silver bonus tiles and by cunningly interlacing ‘sunrays’ and ‘moonbeams’ with your other scoring rows. If it all seems to be going desperately wrong, you can dispose of unwanted tiles by placing them in your ‘Scrap Yard’. But beware - an ‘untidy’ scrapyard can cost you penalty points!
When playing on the Orchid board, choose either the ‘sun’ or ‘moon’ tiles. The special orchid symbols allow you to set aside unwanted tiles, with an option to increase your score by relocating them at the end of the game.
