Rules

Mensa connections is tile based game where each player has six tiles in their hand. The aim is to try and get all of your six colour values up to 18. The score is worked out on the backmost colour and the winner is the player with the highest lowest value ( might need to join mensa to work out that last sentence). Each tile is two small hexagon joined together this can be placed so that it touches any tile that is down or one of the special colour start cells. A player may change his racjk if he has none of the colours of which he has the fewest points in. Otherwise a players rack is replenished at the end of their turn. A point is scored in a colour for making a straight line (at least length 2) and then for each line made a point is scored for the length of the line. A line always starts from the played tile. A tile maybe played for 0 points! To start the game each players needs to play a double. The play continues until there is no room left on the board or a player gets eighteen in all of the six colours. If a player gets a colour to 18 they get another go but without replensihing their rack.
