Simple to learn, yet complex to master, Celtic Challenge is an eye-catching game that will entertain family and friends for hours. To win, be the player who removes the most matching tiles from the board during six quick rounds of play. During a game, if you choose the "binary knot" tile, you'll be prompted to open the accompanying instruction/history book and learn about the meaning of Celtic symbology and runes.
The handsome gameboard is crafted to last for years. Display it on the coffee table as a conversation starter for everyone to enjoy. Played on a solid wood gameboard with rustic tiles adorned with five different Celtic symbols, you'll be learning about ancient Celtic history while playing a fast-paced concentration game.

For 1 or 2 players, ages 8 and up. 15"W x 11 1/4"L x 1 1/2"D.
Complex to master?! Really? This was a total dud. It's not even a game? Four of the plastic tiles are turned up. Remove which ever sign there is the most of. Turn over the rest of the tiles. Repeat. That is it. There is nothing to do here that requires any thought. Just pull of the tiles that match. Play twice and then stick it in the cupboard forever.

I received this game at Christmas and have played quite a bit, can play with grandchildren as well as adults. The kids can win too! You have to use the stones to keep track of which tiles you are to remove or it gets confusing, follow the instructions the first couple of games.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
