Qwirkle is MindWare’s must-have game and it is easy to see why! Simple to learn, yet strategic and exciting to play, Qwirkle is a favourite of all ages. Qwirkle Cubes is the follow-up to one of the most awarded games of all time!
Qwirkle Cubes plays much like the original Qwirkle game – create rows and columns of matching colours or shapes to score the most points – but adds to the strategy because you can roll your cubes for more chances to play the exact shapes you want!
Complete a line of 6 tiles with no duplicate tiles to score a “Qwirkle!”
Roll to win!
What’s in the box?
- 90 cubes
- A draw bag
How to play:
On your turn:
1. If you would like to roll some of your cubes, then roll away!
2. Add cubes to centre pile.
When you play a cube, it has to either match the same colour as the row you want to add it to, or the same shape. Your cubes must be added to the same line, but they do not have to touch one another.
3. Tally up!
One point is scored for each cube in a line that you create or add to. A single cube can score two points if it is part of two lines. Whenever you complete a line of all 6 colours or shapes, this is a Qwirkle! A Qwirkle scores 12 points, six for the cubes in the lines and six bonus points.
4. Refill your hand up to 6 and reroll.
When there are no more cubes in the draw bag, play continues as before and if you are the first one to use all of your cubes, this ends the game and you score six bonus points.
Highest score wins!
Unlike in Qwirkle where your hand is kept hidden, all players will be able to see what you’ve got on your cubes!
Qwirkle Cubes reinforces problem solving and strategic thinking.
