Mozaa Game (BIS Publishers, ISBN 978-9063692964, $19.95) by designer Renske Solkesz is a colourful combination between domino and mosaic. It is the edge matching game that brings out the artist in you. Solkesz explains, that “it was one of those ideas I had years ago. I was doing a designboom online course on paper, and one of the assignments was to design a simple children’s game. I wanted to do something with patterns, irregularity and bright colours. Patterns intrigue me, especially if they are not completely geometric. In this case the stones of a breakwater like this one inspired me. The stones fit together, yet each one is a bit different from the next.”

The box contains 64 cards (tiles) which all have a unique colour combination. Take a playing card from the stack and place it next to the cards on the table, in such a way that the colours on the edges match. The one who creates the most and largest colour fields wins the game. You can build your own colour fields or block the expansions of other players’ fields. Whatever strategy you choose, and whether you win or lose, the end result will always be a different and beautiful mosaic pattern. ❚
