Matchi is beautifully adorned, simple, 2 player game that is easy to learn, yet flexible in it's strategic options. It's engaging enough for serious players, or casual enough to enjoy while having a conversation with a friend. Not to mention, it's a superb way to pass the time during the current lock-down.
The game is presented in a classic Moroccan style lending an air of timelessness to it. It's perfect for seasoned board game players and for new-comers alike. We especially like that it does not take up a lot of room on the table, so it makes a perfect coffee date companion.
The game comes with 8 full colour hexagon tiles, 6 dice, 4 blue player markers, 4 gold player markers, an instruction booklet (with a thank you page for backers!) and a beautifully presented box that it sure to catch the eye.
The object of the game is to be the first player to get all four of their player markers into the center tile.
Players roll dice, and use the dice to perform 1 of 3 actions.
The actions include placing a player marker on the board, moving a player marker, and attacking an opponents player marker.
While the mechanics are fairly simple, it still allows for several strategic choices throughout the game, but not so many that you end up with decision paralysis.
The game runs between 15-20 minutes each and is suitable for ages 8 and older.
