Excellent 2 player game, combining logic and creativity. Who would have thought making patchwork quilts could be so competitive and fun!

Quick and easy

We love playing this game. You can play a round within about 10 minutes and is a great addition to a games evening when you want to play more than one game.

Like Azul and Tetris made a baby

We both loved Azul and wanted a game that gave the same simple, but with depth, gaming experience. Patchwork is so simple and yet, there is a strategic element that really made this game fun challenge. Worth trying if you liked Azul or Kingdomino. Similar to both, but this is just for 2 players. So simple, but I can’t see me ever getting bored when this comes out!

Not as easy as it first appears!

This one often comes off the shelf to play. The play mat has one side with a circular route and the other a square route to collect the buttons and patched. Oddly I only seem to win on the circular side and have often wondered if there's a logical reason for this!

OVERVIEW

InPatchwork, two players compete to build the most aesthetic (and high-scoring) patchwork quilt on a personal 9x9 game board. To start play, lay out all of the patches at random in a circle and place a marker directly counter-clockwise of the 2-1 patch. Each player takes five buttons - the currency/points in the game - and someone is chosen as the start player.

On a turn, a player either purchases one of the three patches standing clockwise of the spool or passes. To purchase a patch, you pay the cost in buttons shown on the patch, advance your time token on the time track a number of spaces equal to the time shown on the patch, move the spool to that patch's location in the circle, then add the patch to your game board. You're free to place the patch anywhere on your board that doesn't overlap other patches, but you probably want to fit things together as tightly as possible. If your time token is behind or on top of the other player's time token, then you take another turn; otherwise the opponent now goes. Instead of purchasing a patch, you can choose to pass; to do this, you move your time token to the space immediately in front of the opponent's time token, then take one button from the bank for each space you moved.

In addition to a button cost and time cost, each patch also features 0-3 buttons, and when you move your time token past a button on the time track, you sum the number of buttons on your game board, then take this many buttons from the bank.

What's more, the time track depicts five 1x1 patches on it, and during set-up you place five actual 1x1 patches on these spaces. Whoever first passes a patch on the time track claims this patch and immediately places it on his game board.

When a player takes an action that moves his time token to the central square of the time track, he places the purchased patch (assuming he had purchased one and wasn't passing), then takes one final button scoring from the bank. Once both players are in the centre, each player loses two buttons for each blank square on his game board. Whoever has the most buttons wins. 

2 PLAYERS | 15-30 MINS | AGES 12+
