Games cover for December 2008 Games Magazine selects:#Intarsiao
Intarsia was chosen by Games as one of the 100 best new games for the year 2009 in the Puzzles category. Here's Robin King's write-up from their December 2008 "Buyer's Guide to Games":
INTARSIA (1 or 2 players)
Designer:   Henrik Morast

An intarsia is a "knitted design resembling a mosaic that is visible on both sides of a fabric." This puzzle truly deserves its name, since the beautiful designs you can make with it form raised complementary patterns on front and back. And yet, it has only one shape of piece and two different colors! Thirty pieces are formed of three connected triangles with black on one end and white on the other. Half of the middle triangles are white and half are black. As with most Kadon products, you will find many designs to try making and several games to play with the pieces. Personally, we're just as happy to play with the pieces and be pleased with the eye-popping results. — RHK
