Match colors and patterns in this strategic mix-and-match games. Players take turns drawing colored tiles and then playing them in a sequence -- any player that is able to get six shapes or six colors in a line scores extra bonus points called a "qwirkle." Qwirkle is a fast to set up tile drawing game with easy to follow rules and a surprising amount of depth to its strategy. 

Sample Turn: 
  • Board Game Bob has six tiles in front of him.
  • Board Game Bob plays two tiles on the game board, which need to be in a row that either matches in color or in shape. 
  • However, each row cannot contain multiples of a color or a shape.
  • In this case, he plays a green and a blue square in a row of squares that does not contain either green or blue. 
  •  Board Game Bob draws up to six tiles again and his turn is ended.
