– QWIRKLE (60-90mins, 2-4 players)
” While Qwirkle is as simple as matching colours and shapes, it also requires tactical maneuvers and well-planned strategy. The game consists of 108 wooden tiles with six shapes in six colours. Using the tiles, players score points by building lines that share a common attribute – either colour or shape. Qwirkle is a quick game to learn, but you’ll soon discover that you need to think strategically in order to score the most points. “
Qwirkle was only released in 2011. I have played it with 2 and 4 players and the game plays well with both these numbers. The wooden tiles are of excellent quality and once a few tiles get placed on the table it becomes beautiful to look at. Just look at the photo below (Marquant). The only thing to keep in mind with this game is that someone needs to keep a record of the score using a pen and paper after every turn. It’s an excellent family game and I even managed to play it with my dad!
