Sevens Up by Lisa Burns Free!
Do you remember the game Merged!? It's a great point scoring game.
Sevens Up by Lisa Burns is essentially the same thing, but with an addition.
But let's go over the objectives first. Score points by getting 3 of the same number together. Three 4's will merge to form a single 5. When three 7's merge, all the surrounding tiles disappear.
In the original Merged! playing 1 game could take an hour or more. Sevens Up offers the opportunity to extend the game practically forever. Look at the third image. In the bottom right corner is a tile with 2 arrows. Placing this on the board will eliminate the tiles in that column. How do you get those tiles? By merging three 7's.
I played this game for about 30 minutes without using any of these special tiles. After 45 minutes, I realized I needed to intentionally lose the game.
Sevens Up offers a nice twist on a great game. The graphics are nice.
