Do you Juxtabo (Funnybone Toys)? If not, you may want to try this new challenging game that claims to be enjoyed by people who love chess, checkers and puzzles. Juxtabo uses colored round pieces on boards of various sizes. You can start with a 4x4 board for easier playing and increase the board size as you go along to 5x5 or 6x6. The object of the game is to make colored designs using challenge cards. When a design is complete, the player takes a challenge card. The person with the most challenge cards at the end wins. The game is over when there are no more pieces in the bag. Although there is a timer, there is an option to play without it. When a player completes the shape on the challenge card, they yell "Juxtabo!"

The game was very confusing at first, even for my parents. We chose the easiest way to play (the 4x4 board) and after playing a few rounds, we really got the hang of it. Overall, it was a fun and unique game. So, do you "Juxtabo"?
