Qwirkle

This abstract game consists of 108 wooden blocks with six different shapes in six different colors. There is no board, players simply use an available flat surface. Players begin the game with 6 blocks. The start player places blocks of a single matching attribute (color or shape but not both) on the table.

Thereafter, a player adds blocks adjacent to at least one previously played block. The blocks must all be played in a line and match, without duplicates, either the color or shape of the previous block. Players score one point for each block played plus all blocks adjacent.

It is possible for a block to score in more than one direction. If a player completes a line containing all 6 shapes or colors, an additional 6 points are scored. The player then refills his hand to 6 blocks. The game ends when the draw bag is depleted and one player plays all of his remaining blocks, earning a 6 point bonus. The player with the high score wins.

Reviews/Comments:

"Qwirkle does everything that a good abstract game should and it even has the chops to entertain someone like me who doesn’t usually go for this sort of thing." - BGG user Neil Thompson

"It is an attractive, well-made game that both the normal gamer and the enthusiast can enjoy, and there is nothing at all wrong with that." - BGG user Jeromie Rand

"It’s easy mechanics and rules make it something that you can play at any time and doesn’t really require any extra brain power, but isn’t insultingly simple." - BGG user Dan Zuccarelli
