Imagine playing Scrabble with shapes and colors, and you've got Qwirkle! Each tile has two aspects: its shape and its color. There are 6 shapes and 6 colors for a total of 108 tiles. On a player's turn, they can place any number of tiles from their hand. Then they draw new tiles to replace them. However, they can only place a tile that if it's either the same color or the same shape as every other tile in it's rows and column. A blue circle can be part of a blue row and a circle column, but not a red row. Also, you can't have duplicates - so two blue circles can't be in the same row or column! You score points for each tile placed, based on how big the rows and columns are that you attached them to. Once the bag and one player runs out of tiles, the game is over and the player with the most points wins.
Includes 108 wooden tiles, a drawstring bag, and the instructions.
