Trax is an abstract strategy game created nearly 30 years ago by a prolific Christchurch inventor, David Smith. The game consists of 64 square tiles painted on both sides.
As in Tantrix, the objective is to create loops or lines of your colour while thwarting your opponent. However there are crucial differences. In Trax all tiles are identical, whereas in Tantrix every tile is unique. The game is designed for two players (although there is a solitaire option). Finally there is no luck involved, so unlike Tantrix, the best player should always win.
