Tantrix Discovery

The Discovery is our most addictive puzzle creation yet. As a progressively challenging solitaire activity it was singled out from the Game Pack to provide the perfect introduction to Tantrix. The concept is simple: Ten tiles numbered on the reverse from 1 to 10. Start with three tiles, then slowly increase the difficulty by adding more tiles - it's guaranteed to hook you.

Contains 10 hexagonal tiles in a wood or chrome stand. The puzzle is designed to sit on your coffee table and drive your guests to distraction. Also available in a black mesh bag. The Discovery is the best way to learn about Tantrix concepts and improve your spatial skills. This is the one to start with!

Tantrix Xtreme

Tantrix Xtreme is a more fiendish alternative to the Discovery, mainly aimed at keen puzzlers or experienced Tantrix players. It contains eight Discovery-type loop puzzles with an extra twist: no colour clue is given for each level. Two new tricky pyramid puzzles are added that provide an even greater challenge.

Your aim is to build loops of various shapes and sizes starting with just three tiles. Each new tile added gives you a different and more challenging puzzle. Xtreme tiles come in chrome and wooden stands as well as mesh bags. Available with black tiles only.

Tantrix Match

Tantrix Match is a puzzle concept designed to train your spatial and logic skills whilst providing heaps of fun. Match contains 13 unique tiles, a wooden tray and a selection of puzzle cards sequenced in order of difficulty from easy to extreme. There are lots of ways you can use your powers of deduction to help you find the solutions!

With over 22 million puzzles possible, the difficulty of each puzzle is determined by the number and position of pre-placed tile clues. To play, a card is placed into the tray, the starting tiles are copied and the puzzle is solved by fitting the remaining tiles to make all colours match.
Tantrix Match Add-On Packs

Three additional sets of puzzle cards are available for Tantrix Match. Each of those "Add-on" packs contains 12 cards of increasing difficulty and is suitable for all ages. Student and Family packs are aimed at people without any prior experience at solving Tantrix puzzles, whereas the Expert set starts off at a moderate level and quickly becomes very hard, which makes them more suitable for Tantrix fans and puzzle enthusiasts.

Student Pack: Easy to medium difficulty.
Family Pack: A range of difficulties from easy to hard.
Expert Pack: Medium to hard difficulty.

Pocket Tantrix

A lightweight travel version of the popular Game Pack, inspired by the inventor's mountaineering friends. A full Tantrix pack weighs around half a kilo, and after carrying a standard set to high altitudes in the Himalayas, there had been demands for an "alpine" edition which just couldn't be ignored.

The new pocket edition contains all the puzzles and games of the standard-sized set, yet only weighs 120 grams. The tiles are still hand painted and made from a virtually unbreakable synthetic resin. It's handy size and light weight makes it the perfect set for posting or travelling overseas.

Tantrix Solitaire

Tantrix Solitaire is the deluxe version of our classic Discovery puzzle. The set contains 14 tiles instead of 10. The tiles are slightly larger and thicker, about four times the weight of standard tiles, and subtly curved on the top and bottom surfaces. Apart from classic loop puzzles, you can play the Solitaire version of Tantrix, which is "half a puzzle, half a game".

Tantrix Solitaire comes in four different editions, each with their own 3-colour combination of links. The tiles of each set are numbered from 1 to 14. Combining all four editions together creates a full large-tile set of Tantrix needed to play the multiplayer game.

Magnetic Tantrix

The magnetic set is aimed at Tantrix addicts who just can't get enough of the game and want to be able to play it anytime, anywhere. The Game Pack with its larger tiles is generally peoples' first choice for playing Tantrix. Magnetic Tantrix is best used when there is no table to play on, when you are on the move, when playing a 'delayed' game where players make moves every once in a while, or when you want to save your attempts at the hardest puzzles to come back to at a later stage.

The set contains 56 magnetised tiles, instructions, a cloth bag to hold tiles not in play and a solid metal playing board. Magnetic Tantrix offers you all the fun of the Tantrix Game Pack in a package for players on the go!

Tantrix Puzzle Pack

This 14-tile pack represents the sweet spot for play value, especially for travellers and frequent cafe customers like the Inventor! Which is to say that for Solitaire Players, the value per cost, and value per weight are both maximised at 14 tiles.

The Puzzle Pack combines the best features of Discovery, Solitaire and Match with some amazing new twists. The total number of puzzles is 40, from easy to expert, and includes 12 puzzle cards. It also includes a new version of Solitaire and the "Ultimate Quest".

Two years in the making, Quest is the hardest Tantrix puzzle to date. With 87 billion combinations, it will take months or even years before anyone in the world finds a perfect solution. The Puzzle Pack has just gone on sale and the current Quest World Record is 10 consecutive attempts. Please contact us if you are close to breaking this record!
