Manufactuer's Description: Qwirkle Cubes is the exciting sequel to MindWare's most awarded game ever. Qwirkle Cubes plays much like Qwirkle - simply create rows and columns of matching colors and shapes to score the most points. However, you have more control over your hand in Qwirkle Cubes because you can roll and re-roll your cubes to get the shapes you want!
Reviews & Comments:
BGG William Anderson:"Wow this is even better than the orginal and that's saying something. This will get lots of play and the wife loves it. That's a big plus. I have never owned a game that so many people wanted to buy their own copy."
BGG Drew:"Amazingly, by adding dice to Qwirkle, the game suddenly becomes far more strategic, and yet still family-friendly. "
BGG Dan Neher:"Same placement and scoring rules as Qwirkle. You may re-roll cubes at the beginning of your turn to try to enhance your placement options. That added bit of strategy makes this game a smidgen better than Qwirkle. For good or for ill, scores tend to be higher and bonuses more frequent. Also, the feeling of repetition that sets in near the end of some games of Qwirkle is less likely to occur here. Beware of gamer types who will stew over which dice to re-roll, though."
BGG Matthew Dickinson:"Just a bit deeper than basic Qwirkle, but still light and family-friendly fun. Based on playing with a 3yo, 6yo, 36yo, and 37yo."
How to play:
Each turn has 3 easy steps:
- Roll as many cubes from your hand as you want.
- Play cubes from your hand to build color lines and shape lines.
- Draw and roll replacement cubes.
Everyone plays open-handed so players can better judge their opponents' future moves. The game offers increasingly strategic scoring opportunities - you decide which cubes to roll and which cubes to play. Qwirkle Cubes is truly a game the entire family can play!
