Will you see the monolithic move that catapults you into first place?
  • EASY-TO-FOLLOW RULES: An engaging game with easy-to-follow rules, Qwirkle is great for younger players. The rules of the game are basic: simply build lines by matching tiles based on either color or shape, and score points for doing so. However, the ability to build complex combinations will keep children interested and engaged, and challenge them mentally.

  • INCLUDES: Product comes with 108 wooden Qwirkle tiles, 1 drawstring bag, 1 rule book.
  • An addictive strategy game in the tradition of Sequence, Scrabble, and Othello, the Qwirkle Board Game from MindWare
    has a simple, straightforward premise: match tiles and win points. But the real joy of the game lies in plotting and
    scheming your way to victory. Winner of the Parent's Choice Gold Award and a Mensa Select National Competition Winner,
    Qwirkle is destined to be a family game night favorite. This game is designed for ages six and up and for two to four
    players.

    Mix, Match, Score, and Win
    --------------------------

    Qwirkle consists of 108 wooden blocks with six different shapes in six colors. Using the blocks, players attempt to
    score the most points by building lines that share the same shape or color. The simple setup makes this an instant
    winner for younger kids, while adults will enjoy strategizing to win.

    How to Play
    -----------

    A typical game of Qwirkle lasts about 45 minutes--longer when you're first learning how to play--and players will
    likely catch on to the rules in no time at all. The game can be set up anywhere, although a large tabletop is best to
    accommodate the generous number of tiles. The only other thing you'll need is a pencil and paper to keep track of
    everyone's point count.

    Each tile has an illustration on the back (circle, eight-point star, four-point star, square, clover, or diamond).
    Each of these symbols appears in six different colors (red, yellow, orange, green, blue, and purple). In total, the game
    has three tiles each of the 36 possible color-symbol combinations. To help make sure you don't lose any tiles in between
    games, Qwirkle comes with a drawstring storage pouch.

    Straightforward, Easy-to-Follow Rules
    -------------------------------------

    As in Scrabble, the game starts with players drawing their own "hand" of six tiles. The player with the most tiles that
    share something in common (color or symbol) plays their pieces and wins points. And so it goes until the pieces make up
    a giant grid. One rule adults will likely need to reiterate to little ones is that duplicate tiles don't count. For
    instance, if someone has three diamonds, and two of them are green, they can only count one of those diamonds for
    points.

    As play continues and the stakes get higher, younger kids may need some help deciding where to build to maximize their
    points. Our testers found that the length of the game may make younger kids squirmy halfway through. To keep them
    engaged, parents can always distribute half the number of tiles to start. The game is over when all the tiles have been
    played and all the points have been tallied.

    What's in the Box
