How to play
- Each player places the 2 small triangles and 1 big triangle on his/her left and 3 other Tangram pieces (the square, parallelogram and medium triangle) on his/her right.
- Shuffle the game cards and place the cards face down.
- Each player rolls the shape die and takes the tangram piece that is shown on the top-face of the die from the pieces placed on his/her right. This is called the rolled-shape piece.
- Start the timer for 3 minutes.
- Players take turns to turn the top card over.
- Each player uses the 2 small-triangles, 1 big triangle and his/her rolled-shape piece to form the shape shown on the opened card.
- Player who forms the correct shape within 3 minutes gets a point.
- Repeat steps 3 – 7 until all the cards have been drawn or as time permits.
