A patch-fitting game with a clever turn mechanic.
Pick from one of 3 material tiles to place on your board, spending the buttons it requires. then, move your turn marker ahead the amount of 'time' it takes to sew in that piece. The player who has used the least 'time' so far gets to go next!
You'll need to move forward at some point though, you only get more buttons by progressing in time, and there are free patches to be collected by being the first to pass them.
Fill your board as much as you can, but don't leave gaps! The most complete board wins. Usually.
Patchwork Express uses the same rules as Patchwork, but a smaller board and tile set, for a quicker game.
