Qwirkle is simple to learn, but surprisingly strategic. Players place up to 6 wooden tiles in a line, matching either the color or shape of the tiles next to it. The strategy comes as you attempt to score a Qwirkle (all six different shapes or colors in a row) without opening up the board for your opponents to score.
