Qwirkle Add/Edit description


The game begins with all the tiles being placed face down on a table and mixed thoroughly. Each player then randomly draws 6 tiles. During their turn, a player may either:

Place one or several tiles on the table

Give up their turn to exchange one or more tiles in their hand for other random tiles

Players earn 1 point for each tile they successfully place on the board. Furthermore, whenever they complete a series of 6 tiles (called a Qwirkle), they score a bonus 6 points. Qwirkles are sets of tiles that share a single characteristic, (e.g. a line of a single shape in all the possible colors or a line of a single color in all the possible shapes). In general, any tiles that are placed in a row must share at least one attribute (either color or shape), and they must be played in 1 line, although they do not need to touch.

Players must always end their turn with 6 tiles in their hand, so if they place tiles during their turn, they draw random tiles to build their hand back up to 6.
Play continues until there are no more tiles to be drawn, and one person uses all of his available tiles.
