New Game!

Flatout Games

Calico is a colorful tile-laying game of quilts and cats for 1 to 4 players that plays in 30 to 45 minutes.

publisher description
 In Calico, players compete to sew the coziest quilt as they collect and place patches of different colors and patterns. Each quilt has a special pattern that must be adhered to, and players are also trying to create color and pattern combinations that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also able to attract the cuddliest cats.
