At first glance CROZZIT from Identity Games may seem simplistic for a board game because it isn't complicated to play but be assured it will provide hours of challenging and competitive fun.  Beware though that playing CROZZIT can become highly addictive.  Once my kids started playing CROZZIT they didn't want to stop!

In CROZZIT there are 3 rules, 2 players and 1 winner.  Recommended for ages 8 to 88, players must block and cross each other with game pieces as they try to make a connected path across the middle of the game board to their assigned sidelines.  CROZZIT can be played fairly quickly for board game standards ranging from 5 to 20 minutes and its layout can quickly be reset so it is easy to keep playing over and over again.  Games can become very competitive as players attempt to outmaneuver each other for the win.  Some of the best moments of our family game night playing CROZZIT was catching an opponent off guard and surprising them with a move.

Each of the players is assigned a color.  One is blue and the other is yellow.  The game board has four sidelines with each player having two edges identified with their color.  Each player gets 32 game pieces in their color (30 small, 1 large, and 1 XL tiles) to use in creating their connected patch across the board.  Each player takes turns placing tiles on the board and the first person to create seamless path connecting his or her two sidelines wins.

There are only three rules to the game which is nice because it allows people to focus on strategizing against their opponent instead of trying to remember a variety of instructions.  Here are the 3 Rules:

1)  You can place your tiles anywhere on the board except no part of a player's tile can rest on a part of an opponent's game piece.  Hint: you can build a bridge to cross it!

2)  A tile can't be placed with any part of it resting on the sideline edge of the board.

3)  Tiles must touch at least one side of another tile to be connected.

There you have it!  Try and connect your tiles while blocking your opponent. The first player that has a path connecting his or her two sides of the board wins the game.  This isn't as simple as it sounds though when you have two players who really want to win.  My kids had some really great battles with neither wanting to let the other one have a chance to win.

CROZZIT gets A GEEK DADDY nod of approval for being an affordable and enjoyable strategic board game that my family had a considerable amount of fun playing.  With its easy to setup and play design, CROZZIT is a great inclusion for any family game night.  For more information, please visit
