Qwirkle is simple, yet challenging, which is why it’s a perennial best seller. To play Qwirkle, players use wooden tiles to make matching rows of shapes or colors and earn points for each tile used, and double points if they score a Qwirkle—meaning they complete a line of 6 matching tiles. The challenge lies in figuring out ways to earn the most points, which makes Qwirkle so engrossing. Definitely belongs in your game collection! For ages 6 – adult.
