QUARTEX Goes Geek AND Chic as Crossover Hit for the Holidays
November 24, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle NewsNovember 24, 2014 - Burlington, ON - Family game night just got a lot more interesting with the availability of CSE Games best-selling game, Quartex™, an abstract strategy game that has crossover appeal and crossed-over the border.
While the game's incredible Canadian sales expansion may be attributed to its provincial roots, invented by Toronto native, Tim W.K. Brown, and published by Burlington, Ontario based CSE Games, Quartex is building in popularity with players throughout Canada and the U.S.
As evidenced by its latest deals with Toys R Us Canada and Calendar Club Canada, Walmart.com and Amazon.com in the U.S., as well as specialty retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada, Quartex is "shaping" up for a very hot holiday season.
Quartex (MSRP $24.99 for 2-5 players ages 8+) is multi award-winning board game and puzzle in one. The game has earned MENSA Brain Game Recommendation, Major Fun Award, Canadian Toy Testing Council Approval and The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Honors.
To play Quartex, players take turns placing tiles by matching and aligning them beside other tiles already in play. Each player tries to complete a four-corner shape in order to earn a point token of that color. However, the twist is, as the number of tokens collected increases, their value decreases. Players can decide if it is possible that less may be worth more. Because players decide where tiles are placed, the shape of every game of Quartex is completely unique. The fun play of Quartex has the added benefits of skill development, including counting and math, logical and critical decision making, pattern/color matching, visual-spatial skills, and hand/resource management.
Fabio Del Rio, president of CSE Games, explained, "Quartex is easy to learn but can be strategically tough to master. Like an advanced type of dominoes with more fun and colorful shapes, Quartex is a fun and challenging game of shape-building for as many as 5 players to play. It's perfect for family get-togethers, holiday gatherings, New Year's Eve game night and almost anytime."
Earlier this year, CSE Games was proud to announce agreements with international distributors to make its games available in Europe and India. Last month, CSE took Quartex for its debut at the world's largest game convention, Essen Spiel '14. The European version of Quartex includes rules translated to German, French, Italian and English.
