    The colored tiles tumble down the ramp. You quickly move your paddle back and forth to catch the tiles, and then you flip them into the bins below to create rows of same colored tiles. The rows can be vertical, horizontal, or diagonal, and three or more tiles in a row creates a Klax.

    Sounds easy, right? It is, until the tiles speed up and tumble down the ramp so fast you can barely keep up! Faster and faster, your paddle becomes a blur as you struggle to keep up with the pace. Will you ace the wave, or will the tumbling tiles be your downfall?

    SO YOU’VE GOT QUICK HANDS. BUT HOW FAST IS YOUR BRAIN?

    For one or two players, KLAX makes you move fast - and think faster!

    Catch colored tiles coming down a conveyor belt. Score big points by arranging them in same-colored stacks of threes – vertically, horizontally or diagonally. A tic-tac-tile game if you will.

    Sounds easy? It is … until the tiles come tumbling at you so fast, you’ll go nuts trying to catch them all – while figuring out where best to stack them before you run out of room!

    No matter how tough it gets, the hardest part is pulling yourself away from this fun, fast, and totally addictive game!
