Great even on the simplest level
from Keizer, OR
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.
Great family game
from Anoka, Mn
A fun filled game that the whole family can play. We have other games... but, when everyone wants to play a game, its Qwirkle!!

Great Gift, Was a Big Hit
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.
Great game for all ages
from Front Royal, Virginia
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.

Fun for all ages
from Hamburg, PA
Qwirkle is a funny name for a fun game! Colorful, sturdy pieces provide visual and intellectual stimulation. The concept is easy enough for a 3-year-old to master, and just challenging enough to make it strategic for us "over-3" types. We use it as a great rainy day alternative to puzzles and board games. The only downside is the odor of the game pieces, sort of a piney, shellac-type smell. So those with strong sensitivities to smell might want to choose something else.
Love this game
from Fitzgerald, GA
I loved this game. I had a great time playing it with my family. I am not sure if a six year old could play it, but the 46 year olds were gettting pretty cutthroat!!

I couldn't wait to buy this game, since it's so comparable to Scrabble (my favorite game of all time), and am so glad I did! We absolutely LOVE IT! Great mind challenging game, for sure. However, the one problem I have with it is that it should have come with wooden trays, as in Scrabble, in order to stand your tiles up and hide them from other players.Otherwise...perfect!
Think Outside the Box
By Oldest Daughter
My mother loves games and art. She grew up playing games with her family all the time. She particularly loves Dominoes and Scrabble and coloring mandalas. Now that Parkinson's is taking a toll on her short-term memory, I thought Quirkle might be a good alternative for her. We played it Christmas Day and she loved it; asked to play again before she went to bed.
Great game to play with kids & adults.
from Willmar, MN
We've played it with just adults and enjoyed it, but it's also easy enough to play with children.

Excellent game for adults and children
By Grandmother of 8
from Colorado Springs, CO
This game is for ages 6 through adult. It's a great way for children, parents and grandparents to bond. There aren't many games that cover such a large age span and are fun for everyone.
Fun with Qwirkle
from Berlin, CT
Great family game. Keeps everyone interested and all ages can play!!
Fun game for the family!
from Racine, WI
Our whole family enjoys this game. It has a different twist than dominoes, so we had to learn the rules, but once we learned how to play it was fun for everyone. My 5 year old loved it, all the way up to her Grandma who is 65!
The whole family is hooked
from San Diego, CA
Played like dominos or uno, even young kids can learn to match colors and/or shapes. This is a game everyone can enjoy.
Great family game!
from Sutton, MA
This game is great for families because young children can understand and play it easily, but it is interesting and challenging enough for adults to enjoy as well. I love the design, feel, and colors.
One of the best family games ever!
from Rochester, NY
We love this game, we play it every thanksgiving with cousin and parents... everyone enjoys it from child to adult. Fun and makes you think.
