The display of black varnished, brightly patterned wooden blocks on the table grows quickly. In each row you may only place blocks with the same pattern but of a different colour. Or different patterns in the same colour: for example circle, square and star in red. Each player can place more than one block. These have to be in a row but they might also score points by expanding other rows. A “Qwirkle” scores the most points – a complete row of six blocks. With your eyes on your own blocks and your mind on the simple rules, you need to search for the best place to play your blocks in this quick, colourful and quite sneaky game. You’ll also need a bit of luck to make sure you draw the right blocks.
