Each triskele has a central hub with three spiral arms extending from it. Usually the spirals would be uniform, but Murray was inspired, and likes a challenge! So he invented these unique triskeles with three different spiral sizes: small (indicated by 1 dot), medium (2 dots) and large (3 dots). We shall refer to the spirals hereafter as either 1, 2 or 3 dots. There is also one centre marker.
The set of 13 triskeles (marked A-K on the backs) comprise all 11 permutations of the 1, 2 and 3 dot spiral arms, plus two duplicates (A-B). The number 13 was revered by the ancient Celts as their year was divided into 13 lunar cycles and birth trees. And furthermore, many cultures consider 13 a lucky number.

There are 55 puzzles in each set of Trisko, ranging from easy to difficult. When connecting triskeles, all spiral arms must have similar sizes, so 1 dot only match with 1 dot, 2 dots with 2 dots etc., like dominoes. And when you have two or more different colour sets you can explore even more beautiful patterns.

In order to play the Trisko game you will need one set for each player (2-4 players), or even in partnerships (4, 6 or 8 players).
Your three goals are: to create the largest kingdom you can, create super spirals and besiege your opponents. With 3 or 4 players, allegiances can be made and broken easily - so watch out! Such a simple game - such good fun for all ages!
