Quatrix is a fusion of backgammon and checkers with a hint of chess and offers hours of challenge, fun, and strategic learning to gamers — young developing minds and discriminating adults. Different from many new games today, Quatrix respects your intelligence, judgement and skill level, encouraging different avenues of engagement with every outing. Purity of mechanics, multiplicity of maneuvers, and random dice rolls ensure that no two games are ever alike! Quatrix is the perfect tool for teaching elementary geometry too!
