Brix is a 4 in a row game where each player places blocks which are all identical. Each block is half orange and half blue, with and X and an O, or an O and an X, depending on the side.
On the easier modes of the game, the players are trying to match their symbols, or colors. On the advanced variant a player is either colors or symbols, and matching 4 of either one of of their chosen options (i.e. the color player could match 4 blue in a row, or 4 orange, and the shapes 4 Xs, etc.)
The latter mode is more complex because there’s a lot more to take into account when placing a piece.
In the event all blocks are placed with no winner, each player them moves a piece on their turn without knocking everything over to try and win.
It’s a simple game, but enough variety to stand a little above other games that are similar that I’ve played.
