BackgroundTrax was invented in New Zealand by David Smith in 1980 and is a classic game of pure strategy that has been enjoyed for many years by many people in many countries.
The OBJECT of the game is to place tiles on any flat surface so as to be first to form track of your color into either
(a) a closed LOOP of any size or
(b) a continuous LINE of any length that joins outermost edges of the tiles in play.
Learning Trax is very easy, you can have the hang of it in 5 minutes. Depending on your play, you can make it as easy or as challenging, as you want it to be. No wonder Trax is described by many as "the best strategy game I have ever seen" to "the purest strategy game ever invented".
