Figure It is one of those games that falls middle-of-the-road. While overly complex games can collect dust, this game is easy to set up and dive in. The concept is simple enough in that you are guessing, almost “Go Fish” style your secret number code from the from the displayed tiles in the center area. In my opinion, it feels more like a guessing games than a strategic crack the code game. 

Had the game design included an element of sequence, meaning guessing the number and order of your secret code, I think the game would be significantly more interesting and challenging. 

As is, this game will be an easy family option but may just as easily be overlooked on the shelf.
