With the successfully funded print and play (PnP) version behind us, I'm fulfilling the promise of now offering the manufactured version enclosed in a tuck box (with instructions printed on the back).  Backers have the choice of either getting the same PnP file (at a higher price than before) or the professionally, larger-in-size, deck. Below shows the tile size comparison:

A SOLO RULES VERSION: there is a non-competitive way to play the game solo:

1.  Place the Hub card in the center of the playing area, then shuffle the remaining 35 tiles.

2. Take the top tile, from the shuffled stack, and play as normal.

3.  Continue until you either run out of tiles or you have no further path to pursue.

4.  At the end, admire the pattern you just created. They'll be different each and every time.

There you are -- a non-competitive way to enjoy the game solo.

Risks and challenges

The deck of tiles and tuck box have already been printed as a prototype, so the only way this project cannot be fulfilled is if the goal is not met.

    .pdf file for tiles & rules for PnP only

    For those late-to-the-party, who want the PnP version, only.

    Aside from the rules page, it is STRONGLY advised you print the three tiles pages onto 8.5" x 11" label sheets, then affix them (uncut) onto card stock sheets. This not only adds strength to the soon-to-be cut tiles, but adds just enough thickness to the backs of the tiles to prevent players from seeing through the backs.

    This file will be delivered to Backers via their email addresses.

    One Deck + 1 freakishly printed tuck box

    Some people bury their mistakes; I try to unload mine. For $50 (plus shipping), you'll not only get a 36-tile deck enclosed in a properly printed tuck box, but you'll also get an empty "oops" box, where I accidentally printed my template for a 36-tile deck box onto a tuck box meant to hold a 48-tile deck! The results aren't pretty (even if they are legible) after they trimmed the results to fit the smaller deck. [see photo bottom left]
