About the SQUAREMINO™ Game  

The SQUAREMINO™ game is a challenging and addictive abstract game for 2-4 players that uses a unique set of domino-like tiles. Players take turns adding sets and sequences to a public network of tiles, attempting to be the first to play all of their tiles.  

Players of various skill levels can all enjoy this game as more casual gamers will enjoy a relaxing social experience and more advanced players will enjoy exploring complex strategies. The game play is a blend of competition and cooperation as players pursue individual goals while jointly building upon a common structure. 

The generously-sized and hand-painted game tiles feel delightful to the touch and are pleasing to the ear as they are shuffled together. As the game play progresses, beautiful patterns of colors emerge, creating an elegant work of art by game's end.

The Official Game Rules of SQUAREMINO™

 

 

 

 

 

The Origin of SQUAREMINO™

SQUAREMINO™ game was originally invented in 2015 by the Frost family (Dan, Wenlan, Daniel and David) as an extracurricular school project. Daniel and David were 16 and 13 then. Since 2015, we have developed the SQUAREMINO™ game concept, designed and prototyped the game pieces, and refined the playing rules. Now, we are proudly presenting this new edutainment board game to the world. 

Currently, we are at the stage of small-scale production. The goal of the Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds for promotion of the game.

Risks and challenges

On the demand side, since the SQUAREMINO™ is a brand new game, we do not have a reliable way to estimate consumer demand for the product.

On the supply side, any economic or physical disruption of trade between the U.S. and China may result in interruptions of supply.

In summary, we cannot wait to deliver the SQUAREMINO™ game into every patron's hands and to see the game being enjoyed by people. Your pledge and support to help us launch this product is extremely important and is greatly appreciated by all of us at Frost & Frost.
