From Brooklyn-based design duo Fredericks & Mae, this fresh collection of classic pencil-and-paper games is great for the office, the daily commute, and any time you could use a little analog fun. Each of the five tear-off pads focuses on a different game—Tic-Tac-Toe, Dots & Boxes, Nim, Hedron, or Hex—with colorful edging, modern graphics, and instructions printed on the cardboard backing. Bust boredom or flex your brain against a friend. With 150 sheets per pad (that’s 750 single games total), this bundle is sure to appeal to players of all ages. And to help get you started, we’re including an 8-pack of Schneider Slider Basic XB ballpoint pens, with black, pink, red, orange, green, blue, light blue, and purple colors within.
This is the classic game, expanded. Like the original, players take turns marking “X” or “O” in any one of the small squares, with the goal of getting three in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. In this version, you can also play a three-dimensional game by using all three boards, imagining them to be stacked vertically. Score three in a row within one board or across all three.
In this gridded land-grab game, players take turns connecting any two adjacent dots with a line. The player who completes a box claims that box, and whenever a player completes a box, that player takes an additional turn. The player who claims the most boxes wins.
This is a strategic process-of-elimination game, where the goal is to force your opponent to cross out the last circle. Players take turns crossing out one or more circles in a straight line. The game is over when one player has no option but to cross out the last circle.
In this calculating capture came, players work to collect as many points as possible by claiming five-sided shapes. Players take turns marking an “X” or “O” on any side of any shape. Once a player has marked three sides of a single shape, the player collects the points of that shape. There are 12 shapes that can be claimed. The player who reaches 62 points or more is the winner.
A trailblazing and blocking contest, Hex finds players competing to connect parallel sides of the board through a continuous path. Players take turns marking “X” or “O” in hexagons anywhere on the board; new moves don’t have to be adjacent to previous moves. Player “X” must connect one “X” side to the other, while player “O” must connect one “O” side to the other.
