Triagonal is a really fun game to play because players can improve their Thinking Skills whilst deciding where to locate their sector formers to the best advantage, hopefully winning them one or more sectors of the game board each time.
Strategy & Planning Skills are developed as a player seeks out opportunities to form six of ‘their colour tiles’ into a Hexagon and win 5 bonus points for each, also whilst looking out for a mid game Instant Win opportunity… [Game Option IV is particularly good for hexagon forming].
Counting Skills are required when the numeric dice is thrown; a child must recognise the value thrown and collect the corresponding amount of sector formers to place into board.
Addition is also required at the end of each game to determine who wins 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th places.
Challenge is in the game at all times, challenging players to win the most sectors of the game board and possibly zoom ahead during the last minutes with any additional bonus points.
Hand-Eye Co-ordination is required when collecting, aligning, and placing sector formers into the board slots which are at three different angles, also when placing the triangular scoring tiles..
Geometric Patterns and Designs can be created by anyone during or after gaming, making an extended use of the 204 game pieces, and game board too if desired.
A few Game Options ~ if you please:

Triagonal’s compact ‘Eco-Box’ benefits everyone too by using less cardboard resources, it weighs far less than other ‘big box’ games, requires less space during transport, an ideal size for posting and can be stored almost anywhere, at home, in the caravan, or boat.
With a strategy game option, a quick game option, a confusion option, a guessing or gambling option, a connect 4-7 option, a team option, a mathematical option, a pass over option, an exchange option, bonus point options, instant win options, artistic creation options, maths and educational options Triagonal will most certainly be a future classic.
