Game night: QWIRKLE and what to like about it

playing Qwirkle

Qwirkle is a nice game with colorful wooden tiles. Matching shapes and colors is fun and a bit captivating.

What I like about this board game:

  • Easy to start. My son didn’t need to keep in mind all the rules, he simply enjoyed completing patterns at first.
  • Works for adults as well, i.e. can get more complicated. Three generations of our family can play at the table and be equally interested.
  • Not time-consuming. I guess anyone who played Monopoly (especially with children) will support me on importance of this point.
  • Simple scoring helps to get your kids interested in mathematics. I owe it to Qwirkle: in 4 weeks my son not only started counting to 100, but also surprised me by adding 2-digit numbers mentally. He just desperately wanted to know who was winning!
