Tile Laying game in which players develop, upgrade, and recycle successive generations of Apple gadgets by laying tiles representing components on a circuit board, connector edge to connector edge in order to form closed loops consisting of newly laid and previously laid components.
Component Tiles can only be placed adjacent to a tile with a shared connector edge (border) OR on top of one another to create Gadgets. Each successive generation of gadget is built on top of the prior generation's components. Components on the stack level corresponding to the current device generation are added to the builder's score, components hidden by others on higher stack levels are subtracted from the score. A completed gadget-- a closed loop of component tiles also referred to as a device-- is defined by it's most numerous component type, with each component corresponding to a different device, and scores a bonus upon completion. Gadget Cards depict their majority component requirement and keep track of descending bonus values for each device generation of that type built by all players (the first one built is worth more).
Print-and-play. Best to print Tiles on transparent adhesive and adhere to tiles from manufactured game (such as Scrabble or Banagrams).
