The Crew members were thrilled to hear they had the opportunity to play and review Tri-Cross, from the fine folks of Games for Competitors. Each reviewer received their Eco Version of Tri-Cross, as well as the board game version. The Eco Version of the game stays true to the signature board style and scratch proof game pieces, yet, does so in an environmentally friendly way. Trading in the large cardboard box for a resource reducing, organic cotton drawstring bag, the organic cotton cloth board, printed with non-toxic soy-based inks, is easily folded to fit inside with the game pieces. Perfectly compact to fit on the shelf or to throw in your bag for on-the-go game play.
So, exactly what is Tri-Cross? Tri-Cross is a strategy game with a twist. The creators have noted that Tri-Cross is a cross between Checkers and Chess.
