This is a fantastic game. Both parents and 5 yr old have played several times now and have loved it!

We bought this for our (advanced) 4-year-old granddaughter and she loves it. The scoring is almost beyond my comprehension, but she has great fun matching shapes and colors. So, fun even when played at a very basic level, and obviously more strategy and complexity down the road. I would recommend this, even if you think all they can do is match tiles.

A fun filled game that the whole family can play. We have other games... but, when everyone wants to play a game, its Qwirkle!!

Got this game for my son-in-law for Christmas. He and my daughter are big board gamers, since they've had a 'No TV' pact since the wedding (yeah, pretty cool). He is also a doctoral candidate in math, and she's an artist. So finding a game that will meet their various standards is a challenge. This one caught my eye for some reason. Do not be fooled by the six and up designation. While a young child can easily catch on to this game, it is colorful and graphic, and is a challenging, mental game as well, and will easily satisfy adults. Fun, easy to learn, and we played three times the first night, and are seriously thinking of buying another set to make the game more elaborate. Figure on about 45 minutes per round. Definitely recommended.

We are on our second game. We used the first one so often that the paint wore off the tiles (which is my ONLY complaint about Qwirkle). We love it! We've given sets to our children/grandchildren and they're hooked on it, too. Great concept, great game, lots of fun and an easy way to teach strategic play to kids.
