Simple rules with stacks of strategy!

Jinxx is an abstract strategy game for 2-4 players featuring striking stacking pyramid-shaped pieces in three sizes and four colors--black, white, gray, and clear. In Jinxx, players jockey for position on a 3x3 grid. Pyramid size and a die roll determine your possible moves on each turn. Use your move to capture an opponent's piece or better position one of your own pieces. If you own the topmost pyramids in any three-space line through the center, you win! But be careful — you can also be eliminated if you lose too many of your pieces!

Game Play

Each player starts with their 9 pieces stacked as trees along one side of the 3x3 board. Rolling the special pyramid die determines what moves you can make as you move your pieces onto and around the board. If you land on a piece of the same size, it’s removed from play. The goal is to create a three-in-a-row line of your pieces through the center space, or to be the last player left with pieces.
