A creative & challenging family board game that will leave kids (& even adults) fascinated about the beauty of geometry.
The game consists of sticks of three different lengths – 3, 4 and 5 units long. Use these to try and create geometric shapes. Based on the size and type of shape, you earn points. Sounds simple? Not quite. Firstly, you don’t get to choose the sticks – it is determined by a randomly chosen card. And secondly, you can use only two sticks per turn! Creating a shape using only two sticks is impossible. Hence you have to use your two sticks along with the ones that the other players may have placed on the board. That is where the game turns highly creative. Which two sticks will you use? Where will you place them? Think creatively to win.

Transforming learning into a truly exciting experience.
Playing is a great way to learn. It brings out the innate interest in everyone to participate actively. We make board games that are highly compelling and fun to play, but at the same time, drive learning in the background without kids even realizing.
Three Sticks is one such concept from our lab that geometry is not just about remembering shapes & their properties. It’s a way of thinking!
International Standard Quality
The game includes 4 boards that join together to make a huge 18×18 inch board and 85 sticks that can be used to make shapes on the board. All these components are CE certified and made using sturdy, non-toxic ABS plastic.
Dynamic Game Play
With reload cards randomly determining the sticks each player gets and the limit of using only two sticks per turn, every turn presents a new challenge. Add to this special power cards that keep you on the edge throughout the game.
Easy To Learn
The game includes a fully illustrated rules book to fully comprehend how to play Three Sticks. You may also choose to just watch a video on YouTube to learn how to play within 10 minutes: https://youtu.be/5872rN8dak4.
Develops Creativity & Curiosity
Just two sticks to use in each turn. But still so many possibilities. Which sticks to use? Where to place them? Which shapes are created in the process? Which one gives the most points?
Spatial Awareness of Shapes From Triangles To Decagons
The game provides ample opportunities to express your creativity in making shapes from triangles to even decagons. Keep playing and within a few days, you will start recognizing how any complex shape can be represented as a combination of simple shapes and hence be able to calculate area of any shape without depending on your memory to remember formulas and short-cuts.
About the Startup

Play. Learn. Geometry.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
As kids, we used to play with Tangrams which involved combining squares and triangles to make silhouettes like a walking man, a vase, etc. This acted as an inspiration for us to find a way to help kids realize that all shapes are connected and no shape is too complicated. Soon enough we discovered that a right angled triangle can be a building block to all shapes. Thus we began working with three sticks of lengths 3, 4 and 5 units which together form a right-angled triangle and we immediately knew we had a great game at hand.
What makes your product special?
Simple rules, yet so many possibilities. This makes the game a compelling and challenging entertainer to kids, parents and even grand parents. Three Sticks allows players to express their creative thinking and appreciate geometry at a much more practical level. Plus unlike one-time puzzles, the game can be played repeatedly with new learning each time.
What has been the best part of your experience?
Launching the game on Indiegogo and finding interest and appreciation from parents and teachers from 15 countries was undoubtedly the best part for us.
