Tintas is played on a hexagonal game board with 49 spaces and pieces in seven colors and a neutral pawn for collecting the pieces.
The player who collects all seven pieces of one color wins the game.
“Never Play Chinese Checkers Again […] Tintas is one of those rare games that is easy to play, and offers a satisfying set of choices. […] I really love this game. It checks almost every box for me. Light, fast, great to look at, and portable.”

The answer to that question partly depends on what you’ve already collected since the opponent has a few glowing Xs of their own, and those intersecting landmine maps light up the tension on the board, driving you to avoid disaster and aim for the security of most, but sometimes you take the wrong step and everything ends with a bang…”
