Trax is an elegant game played with one type of
tile, which has
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
eight spaces from margin to margin. Spaces where only
can fit are filled automatically. There are a
conditions in the official
rules, but that's really just about it.
Trax is a fast, tactical game, where one player is almost
threatening an immediate win. Played by experts,
recognition seems to be more important than deep analysis.
Robots: the robot
for Trax are pretty good, but still beatable. They're
good enough to teach you the game, but not good enough to
practice for a serious tournament.
