TREKS is designed to be challenging, educational, and enjoyable. Like a good walk outdoors, it is full of variety. You can change the game to make the play simpler or add rules to make it more complex. And, as each game progresses, your strategy for winning can change!The goal of the game is to be the first player to move all five of your pieces (treksters) from your own home row into the opponent’s home row across the board.
After each move, you must announce the direction and the number of spaces moved by each trekster. For example: I moved this trekster four spaces east and this trekster one to the south. If you forget to make this announcement, your opponent may call out your omission and undo your move!
Included with the kit are print/braille overlays and pieces to use for varying the basic game. They are:
- An overlay with the four cardinal directions labeled and another with only a north arrow.
- An overlay with numbered and named streets.
With this game variation, you are required to name the starting and ending intersection for each move rather than the compass direction, as in: Moving from Third and Bay to Third and Fox or Moving from Second and Hart to Seventh and Hart.
