Not far into the future, a stone was found in a star. Then, more stones were found. It turns out that if you combine three of these stones in the right way, you create a very valuable jewel. What’s more, you can combine them in a different way to create rocket fuel.
In Troika, you are an adventurer who has dreamed of making your fortune. So, you’ve traveled to a distant star, along with other wanderers. Unfortunately, your spacecraft has run out of fuel. So, while the temptation to create jewels is powerful, if you don’t create fuel as well, you’ll die as the richest person in the universe!
In the game, you place all the heptagonal tiles face down on the table, and on your turn, you either draw a face-down tile or take a face-up tile that someone returned to the table. You have a hand limit of seven tiles, and within that limit you’re trying to collect three tiles of the same number (to serve as fuel) and three tiles in numerical order (to transform into a gem). If you have no fuel, you can’t win the game. The player with the most valuable jewel, and fuel, wins!
But, it’s not easy. Gameplay is fast. So, don’t forget to watch your opponents. Never stop thinking about the possible combinations of numbers. Most importantly, don’t lose your head!
