Cinco Linko

The Five-Minute, Five-In-A-Row Tile Game

Cinco Linko is a 5-minute fiesta that you can fit in your pocket, clip to your bag or sling in a suitcase. The rules are simple – just choose a color, grab a stack and lay down tiles until someone gets a line of five.

With a board that’s constantly changing and players racing towards the final goal, Cinco Linko might be easy enough to learn… but winning is a different story.

HOW IT WORKS

Tiles at the ready

Each player chooses a stack of 15 coloured tiles. Choose a player to go first and have them start off the game by placing a tile in the middle of the table.

The next player must now put down a tile next to the previous players. Remember: tiles must always be connected by a flat edge – so no placing corners on corners.

Horizontal, vertical, diagonal

The aim is to get five of your tiles in a straight line before anyone else. These lines can either go horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

It might be easy to play, but winning isn’t so simple. Choose to go on the offensive and create as many lines as you can, or play defensively and focus on blocking players, waiting for your time to strike.

No more tiles? No problem

If all the players manage to run out of tiles and there’s still no winner, the game takes on a whole new shape.

One by one, players can reposition their tiles around the table until someone wins. Just make sure you don’t leave any tiles ‘stranded’ – everything must stay connected by a flat edge.
