Qwirkle is a simple block/tile laying game where you match colors and shapes. But it takes more than simple matching to score high points.
As you can see in the video review, it’s easy to get a couple points here and there with simple matches. But scoring the big points takes some planning, timing, and luck of the draw. But if you plan it right, you can bend that luck a little to go in your favor.
Can the whole family enjoy Qwirkle?
Yes and No.
Yes in that Qwirkle is easy for youngsters to understand and play. And older kids and parents can have fun too.
But No in the sense that all may not be able to play at the same time. Playing with all 6 in our family took too long for this type of game. But when sticking with 4, it's a good game.
Kid’s Rating: 8/10 (stated as a 4 out of 5 Meeples score in the video review)
Dad’s Rating: 7/10 Good, light family game that’s quick to play without any worry about set up time - just pull it out and play.
