I know this game is no patchwork, different rules and all, but...

could patchwork be played with the pieces provided in this game?
are the shapes of the tiles the same?

The pieces are all displayed in the rules if you want to see the shapes, as for the size they seem to be the sam size as the patchwork ones (I haven't actually compared them though) but even so I think you could not use them in patchwork, because they don't have buttons and time printed on them as the patchwor pieces have.

I don't think it would be worth the trouble to make it work. You don't have the time board or the buttons or the buttons marked on the pieces. And that is assuming the same pieces in the same quantities with a board the same size.

It is an interesting question for people who don't want to buy anything from Lookout anymore.

I don't understand. What did Lookout do?

I totally forgot about the buttons and the time icons. this is what happens when you don't think things before you type.

I believe that he is implying that because of people like me who can not afford to buy both games (at the moment), Lookout could go broke.
I could be wrong, though.

Not too happy with Lookout since Mayfair bought them. Not a big deal really, I'm not trying to suggest to anyone else they should boycott Lookout or anything like that but if Patchwork was playable with Cottage Garden pieces that could be very interesting to me. And I haven't really got a lot of budget for games so two for one would be awesome!
