Tillywig award review....
The language of Array is color and connection, but its defining characteristic is the way it gets your mind moving, assessing possibilities and weighing options. There are often several choices available on any given turn. Unless you are able to see and play them through in your mind, you are liable to make the poorer ones. Array is played in quick-moving rounds, with players placing multi-colored cards from their hands next to ones on the table whose colors match at the point of contact. This is called a Splice. Players can also do a Slice and Splice, breaking apart an existing connection and then building on the two severed cards. The goal is to be the first player to rid your hand of cards, ending the round with cards left in other players' hands counting against them. There are also special Splatter and Slam cards that can be used to put other players at a disadvantage. The beauty of Array is that the sometimes intricate thought processes that come into play unfold naturally and pleasurably, kicking your mind into high gear in the service of fun and games!
