Easy as pie

What a pleasant surprise this game turned out to be! For a deeply analytical brain like mine, it has lots of challenges as I try to work out all the probabilities; for someone like my partner who just likes to play games, it's thought-provoking and fun. I kept wanting to play round after round to get a better score than last time.

Laying down the tiles is easy at first, but eventually you find that the next tile you get doesn't go anywhere, so you have to sacrifice one line - the choice of which line to ruin is often painful to make! Once in a while you do get the tile you want, but then probably so did everyone else you're playing with.

The game is easily played alone, and is more fun played in groups as you get to compare scores for different layouts of the same tiles. Take it Easy has something for everyone. It's highly addictive, and I highly recommend it.
