A short and quick game, attractive in its own way. The "game board" consists of a standing plastic "window" in which the game pieces are placed. There is room for each piece to be slid into the window from the top, where they fall to the bottom of the window. As the pieces are played, they stack up higher and higher towards the top of the window.

Once a player has played a piece that cannot fit completely in the window, he loses that piece from further play in the game. The "winner" of the previous round starts the new round.

Play continues until one player no longer has a piece to play. The game usually lasts around 4-7 rounds, once a player loses three of their pieces, it is rather tough to stay in the game.

Pieces are made out of 1/4 inch wood, dyed brown and yellow. The pieces are simple triangular and square shapes, ranging from 2 inches to three inches across.

The instruction booklet is well done in a number of languages. The rules are easy to learn and can be picked up within a couple of seconds. Even my four year old can play.

Not overly strategic, generally, you try to drop your larger pieces into the bottom of the window and save your smaller pieces for later in the round, when space is tight.

This is a good game for passing a couple of spare minutes on a weekend or in between other games on a gaming night. It is not "Puerto Rico," but then I don't think it was meant to be.
