    You’ll improve your critical-thinking and logic skills as you plan subsequent moves.


    The board can change during gameplay, and the pieces can function differently as well.

    Your brain is begging you for a new strategy game to flex your frontal cortex. Your wallet is not-so-politely reminding you that you're on a budget. Good thing your mind just hit pay dirt with Modus so you can get three brain-boosting games in one value-packed box. Modus has 24 tiles that form different game boards and 16 blue or white playing pieces. The board can change during game play and the pieces can function differently depending on whether the top or bottom is showing up. Master all three games and then give your frugal and brainy self a much-deserved pat on the back.

    How to Play:

    In Modus, the wooden tiles and playing pieces are used to play three separate two-player strategy games:

    Four Circles:
    Move pieces to adjacent free tiles, or jump over pieces. If jumping, the piece in motion is flipped, with the circular markings facing up. To win, place 4 of your pieces, with the markings facing up, in a row.

    Hopper/Sneaker
    "Hoppers" are pieces with circular markings facing up. "Sneakers" have the markings facing down. Sneakers can move to any free adjacent tile, but are flipped to Hoppers after they are moved. Hoppers can jump over one or more adjacent pieces, but are flipped to Sneakers after they are moved. To win, be the first to move your pieces to the opposite side.

    Up & Away
    Begin with all pieces face down. Flip to face up after jumping over adjacent pieces. Remove face-up pieces after being jumped over by another piece of the same color. To win, be the first to flip all your pieces and remove them from the tiles.

    The Marbles BrainCoach says...

    One of our more abstract strategy games, Modus is at first an enigma. If you’re a fan of those abstract, German-style strategy games that throw your mind for a loop, you need to pick up Modus. With three different games to play using the wonderful wooden pieces, Modus is a super travel-friendly game for two, that doesn’t take days or hours to finish.
