Patchwork has been available for over a year. Does anyone have any idea why it's suddenly storming up like this? I really like it, but I do wonder what caused this. Was it not widely available outside Europe before or something?

Snowball effect of more plays -> more reviews and ratings and more buzz -> more buys -> more plays -> more ratings -> repeat?

Also lots of games take time to rise slowly.

Yes, it's been made more widely available here in the States recently.

I am so terrible at Patchwork. I have played it 6 times and have only won once. My mother beat me 10 to -9 or something like that. I had played it 3 times previously and it was her first time, she's in her 70s. Maybe I need a new hobby... I still love the game though.

On a side note, go Codenames go!
