TILE! The board game that only takes three minutes to learn
TILE! can be enjoyed by everyone, from children to adults, men and women; just like Chess, Dominoes and Othello.
TILE! is a new kind of game, which we would like to introduce to the world.
With its inception in January of 1999, TILE! has since been put through the ringer,
undergoing rigorous simulation studies and design research to reach gaming perfection.
TILE! is elegance in simplicity. This vision extends to all facets of the game,
from movement and positioning to the game board pieces themselves.
■ Rules take only three minutes to learn
■ No age barrier
■ No language barrier
■ Universal playability and enjoyment
Help us found a game that will still be played hundreds of years from now, following in the path of Chess, Dominoes and Othello.
Be part of history!
This game can be played with two to four players.
Game set includes a game board, four player pieces and tiles in different patterns, with 20 tiles for each of three types.
Choose your player piece, then place all game tiles around the board facing down. Decide who goes first and begin the game.
You can move your piece three spaces to a white square, either horizontally or vertically.You cannot move to a blue square.
Next, choose a tile and see what pattern you got.
Place the tile to match the pattern on the game board.
Pieces can’t move to a space where tiles are already placed.
Repeat with each player taking turns.
TILE! is won if you can be the fastest to move your piece off of the game board, or trap another player’s piece with a tile so that they can’t move anymore.
Hello Kickstarter Community!
Thank you for taking a look at my project!
The concept for TILE! first came to me about 15 years ago.
That was just the time when the internet was coming to be a thing of everyday life and video games were all the rage.
Rather than dismay and give up, this turn of events only encouraged me to work harder.
Throughout this time I set up a little workshop and began hand making prototypes, one after another.
Now, with the help of you and Kickstarter,
I would like to bring my labor of love out of the basement for the whole world to take part in and enjoy.
Special thanks to my friends at C3 Film Co., LTD (where I work), who helped me make the promotion videos.
Wouldn’t be here without you.
