Trax is an elegant game played with one type of tile,
which has a cross on one side and two quarter-circles on the
other. The goal of the game is to form a closed loop in your
color, or a line which extends eight spaces from margin to
margin. Spaces where only one tile can fit are filled
automatically. There are a few more conditions in
rules, but that's really just about it.
Trax is a fast, tactical game, where one player is almost always
threatening an immediate win. Played by experts, pattern
recognition seems to be more important than deep analysis.
the robot players for Trax are pretty good, but still
beatable. They're definitely good enough to teach you the
game, but not good enough to use to practice for a serious tournament.
