• Flex your brain muscles in an extremely entertaining strategy game

Flex your brain muscles!


In XOBrainer you flex your brain muscles to win! The object of the game is to get 5-in-a-row in either shape (X’s or O’s) or colour (green or red).

It sounds simple but you have to think two-dimensionally and use not only your own pieces but also your opponent’s pieces to get 5-in-a-row.  When you get 5-in-a-row you earn a number of points based on the placement of the row on the game board.

You win the game when you’ve earned enough points or by being ingenius and winning by KnockOut!

XOBrainer can be played one-on-one or team vs. team. In a team battle, the players can discuss the strategy during the game, but have to rely on skill and ingenuity to win the game.
