A strategy board game
for 2 or 3 players by Néstor Romeral Andrés.
XATS is a game that uses the spare parts (called 'Xats') generated when cutting the spiked holes of the tiles for the game STAX (Cameron Browne - 2011). I decided to ‘recycle’ these tiles by designing a game for them. XATS is a boardless game where 2 or 3 players create and destroy towers while trying to match the number of tiles on their reserve with the number of spikes of their topmost tiles in play.
XATS is simple enough to be learned quickly, but deep enough to reward the toughest players.
Components: 13 red xats, 13 blue xats, 13 white xats, black pouch. Xats are 16 mm diameter and the largest distance from spike to spike is 26 mm.
