Criss Cross has thus far only been available in Germany. Grail Games is happy to bring this simple, yet thinky, roll-and-write game to an English-speaking audience in 2018, with all-new "advanced" rules included!

Designed by: Reiner Knizia
Artwork: Heiko Günther
Players: 1-6
Ages: 8+
Length: 10mins


Criss Cross is extremely simple to play and teach. It is a super-accessible roll-and-write game from the prolific Dr. Knizia.

A game lasts 12 rounds. Each round, the two dice are rolled and each player must write the two symbols shown in adjacent squares on their score sheet. Players will score for having groups of symbols in each column and row.

The trick is - all players have the same symbols to use, but finding the best place to put them is not easy :)

The Grail Games edition comes with new, advanced rules, that give players a couple more things to consider. The game is therefore great for families, and "gamers".

Each copy of Criss Cross will come in a sturdy, 2-piece box (110x110x30mm).

It will contain:

  • 1 rules leaflet
  • 100 score sheets
  • 6 mini pencils
  • 2 custom 6-sided dice


As a thank you for pre-ordering the game, we will cover all shipping costs (worldwide). Please note that all games are due to ship from China. This means that the game is small enough and cheap enough that we expect it to escape import duties/taxes/fees (when coming in to the EU, for example), but we cannot ensure this.

As a further way of saying "thank you," we are happy to offer all those who pre-order Criss Cross, the opportunity to pre-order the much-anticipated Kashgar at the same time, for a discounted price!

We are planning to send email updates to all who pre-order at least once a month until it arrives at your door. When you order, please ensure you include a valid email address!
