TREKS: The Game of Compass Directions is a game of direction designed for children with neurological impairments to play. TREKS is designed to be challenging, educational, and enjoyable. Like a good walk outdoors, it is full of variety. Players can change the game to make the play simpler or add rules to make it more complex. And, as each game progresses, the player's strategy for winning can change. The goal of the game is to be the first player to move all five of the player's pieces (treksters) from their own home row into the opponent’s home row across the board. After each move, the players must announce the direction and the number of spaces moved by each trekster. For example: If the player moved one one trekster four spaces east and another trekster one to the south. If they forget to make this announcement, their opponent may call out their omission and undo your move.
Included with the kit are print/braille overlays and pieces to use for varying the basic game. Includes an overlay with the four cardinal directions labeled and another with only a north arrow and an overlay with numbered and named streets.
