Game of Kriss Kross A Game of Wits for Young And Old


A mid-20th century game made by Gabriel, Kriss Kross is a curious tile-laying contest. Tiles are laid to score more points than the opponent. The game resembles dominoes but utilizes cross-shaped pieces which must interlock when placed. Players match pips but may also line up three pips in a row for more points.
