How to Play
A typical game of Qwirkle lasts about 45 minutes–longer when you’re first learning how to play–and players will likely catch on to the rules in no time at all. The game can be set up anywhere, although a large tabletop is best to accommodate the generous number of tiles. The only other thing you’ll need is a pencil and paper to keep track of everyone’s point count. Each tile has an illustration on the back (circle, eight-point star, four-point star, square, clover, or diamond). Each of these symbols appears in six different colors (red, yellow, orange, green, blue, and purple). In total, the game has three tiles each of the 36 possible color-symbol combinations. To help make sure you don’t lose any tiles in between games, Qwirkle comes with a drawstring storage pouch which is also used during game play.
Straightforward, Easy-to-Follow Rules
As in Scrabble, the game starts with players drawing their own “hand” of six tiles. The player with the most tiles that share something in common (color or symbol) plays their pieces and wins points. And so it goes until the pieces make up a giant grid. One rule adults will likely need to reiterate to little ones is that duplicate tiles aren’t allowed. For instance, if someone has three diamonds, and two of them are green, they can only play one of those green diamonds on a turn. As play continues and the stakes get higher, younger kids may need some help deciding where to build to maximize their points. To keep younger childfren engaged, parents can distribute half the number of tiles to start. The game is over when all the tiles have been played and all the points have been tallied.
Qwirkle Cubes combines favorite Qwirkle game play with the added excitement found in dice-rolling games. Players can roll their cubes for a chance to get the colors and shapes they want to score more points. Complete a line of 6 tiles with no duplicate attributes to score a “Qwirkle!”
Qwirkle fans asking for tile racks will love the Qwirkle Bonus Pack! 4 racks display and organize each player’s hand of tiles during play. The pack also includes a score pad and colorful Qwirkle pencil to tally points.
Qwirkle Rummy is the fun family card game based on MindWare’s award-winning game! Players create sets of cards by matching suits or colors and laying them face up on the table. Any player can add to any set or switch cards in the sets but the real payoff happens when a set of all 6 shapes or colors is completed and a Qwirkle is scored. A little bit of strategy and a little bit of luck is all it takes — as long as you keep your eyes on the cards and your mind in the game!
