This game is simple enough for beginners but challenging enough for adults, so it’s the perfect fit when you need a game that will work for all ages. Your child will have fun while practicing math and building strategy skills at the same time.
To speed up the game, we skip keeping score and put the focus on matching the colors and patterns. You can play a whole game in about 30-45 minutes, and then after the game our younger kids will extend the fun by building towers with the tiles.
Qwirkle also comes in a compact travel version, so we keep it in our suitcase and take it with us wherever we travel as a family!
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 6 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) most 5-year-olds and even some 4-year-olds are ready for this game.
From the Manufacturer
This simple game of matching colors and shapes is a must-have for your next family game night! Players score points by building rows and columns of brightly colored tiles that are either all the same color or all the same shape, without creating duplicates; create a line of all six in a row, and you score a “Qwirkle.” It’s the perfect combination of skill and chance that all ages can play, understand, and enjoy!
