Description

Qwirkle is a game of matching color and shapes. There are 108 wooden tiles with six shapes in six colors. Each tile is worth one point. Players score points by building rows and columns of tiles that share a common shape or color. As a tile is played it must  be played in a line and match, without duplicating, either the color or shape of the other tiles in the line.

Look for opportunities to score big by placing a tile that touches multiple pieces with matching attributes. Earn additional bonus for completing a line of 6 tiles - a Qwirkle.



Awards: Mensa Select, 2011 Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year), Parents' Choice Gold Award, and the Major fun! Award.
