Place your tile smart and score !
Match Point is a smart & fun game for all. Combine the tiles to get the highest number of points in each turn and win the game. Challenge each other to attain the highest score! The players need to connect the colours to score. Each tile has 4 parts with a colour and a number of spots on them. Connecting two or more colours by placing your tile gives you the number of dots on the sections which are connected by your move. The more colours you connect, the higher the number of points. Since the tactical boardgame Matchpoint also has special joker sections, it is even possible to make a chain of scoring colours. Try it out yourself and you will be amazed about the possiblities. Matchpoint is fun to do, educational and challenging. You learn your mathematics faster, learn to combine too and therefore Matchpoint is also highly suited for children in the age of 6-12 years and the game is being used at many schools for this purpose: Smart & Fun game play!
