Qwirkle is a simple game of quick thinking and strategic movements. It’s the perfect combination of skill and luck for all ages to understand and enjoy. You match colours and shapes in a row or column to score points. With over 4 million copies sold worldwide, Qwirkle is a must-have for your next family game night!
In Qwirkle, you are trying to make lines of tiles that are either all the same shape or all the same colour. You can never place 2 identical tiles in the same line. They all have to be different so each line can be a maximum of 6 tiles as there are six different shapes and six different colours.
The starting player will be the player with the most tiles of the same attribute. The starting player places the first line and scores a point for each tile in that row. After placing their tiles the starting player will then pick up as many tiles as they placed - you should always have 6 tiles in your hand.
Play then continues clockwise around the table and each player adds tiles to try and complete rows. You can place tiles on either side of the placed tiles and again you get one point for every tile in that row. If you place a tile that fits into two rows, you get points both ways.
Instead of adding tiles to the grid, you can also choose to replace any number of your tiles but this ends your turn and you can’t place any tiles this go. If you don’t have any tiles that fit onto the grid, you can’t just pass you have to exchange tiles to try and get some different ones.
If you complete a row of all six tiles, this is called a Qwirkle. A Qwirkle scores 12 points, six for the tiles in the lines and six bonus points!
Once there aren’t any tiles left to draw, play continues as normal but if you don’t have any tiles that fit on the grid, you can just pass your turn as no more exchanges can be made. The first player to use their very last tile scores a bonus of six points and ends the game.
