I’m Brent Vincent, and it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Latice Hawaii, a game developed by my wife, our daughters, and myself in our living room. I hope you enjoy playing it as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it.
In Latice, you get ahead by playing your tiles as quickly as possible. You have to be careful, though, because you’ll need to balance how fast you play with saving resources for future turns and making sure you don’t set up your opponent.
This game is fast-paced, competitive, and more than a little addictive. Can you keep the gameplay light to allow an adult to play with an 8-year-old? Absolutely (hint: just give the adult a few extra tiles at the beginning). Can adults play competitively with the best players using chess-style strategies? Even better.
It’s quite challenging to explain what makes Latice gameplay so unique, but let me try. It’s like a combination of Rummy, Sudoku, and a Rubik’s Cube. The game can be won or lost in just a few turns, but you’re never out of the game until the last tile is played.
Bottom line, it’s a great game that will be loved by everyone you share it with. A game you’ll keep coming back to again and again. Try it, we know you’ll enjoy it — that is, as long as you’re a person who enjoys strategy and fun (this said, if you’d prefer a game about poop, the folks over at Hasbro can help!).
Wishing you many fun-filled games with the people you love,

“Latice is a game that does a fantastic job of bridging young or casual gamers with older, more experienced players. I can count on one hand the number of games that my 13-year-old, my 8-year-old, and I can play together. Latice is a thankful addition to that rarefied group.”
NAPPA Award 2019
“The game takes about 20-30 minutes to play and can be done as partners to help younger children learn about playing and how to strategize. I would recommend this to parents, grandparents, and teachers, anyone who likes to play games.”
Tillywig Toy Awards 2019: Best Family Fun
“Latice Hawaii plays extremely well across a broad range of ages. Kids, friends, parents, and grandparents can compete enjoyably against one another without a predictable outcome, making for outstanding party and family fun – until the final tile is played, it’s anybody’s game!”
The Dice Tower Seal of Approval
“Latice came out of nowhere and really surprised me. This is a game I can wholeheartedly recommend especially to folks who are not necessarily into gaming. This is an easy sell for someone who wants to include the kids or have people who play at different levels. Thumbs up for me. Check this one out, folks!”
–Zee Garcia, The Dice Tower
LATICE HAWAII combines simple rules with evolving complexity for a unique game that’s easy to learn, quick to play, with strategic potential to last a lifetime.
