Product Description
Patchwork is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. In the past, it was a way to make use of leftover pieces of cloth to create clothing and quilts. Today, patchwork is a form of art, in which the designers use precious fabrics to create beautiful textiles. The use of uneven pieces of fabric in particular can result in real masterpieces and is therefore being practiced by a large number of textile artists. To create a beautiful quilt, however, requires effort and time, but the available patches just do not want to fit together. So choose your patches carefully and keep a healthy supply of buttons to not only finish your quilt, but to make it better and more beautiful than your opponent‘s.

    5Great spacial reasoning 2 player game!
    By Nick
    Fantastic game! My girlfriend and I have been playing this a few times per week. While the theme is a patchwork quilt, don't let that deter you. It provides a nice whimsical theme as a backdrop to fantastic mechanics! The gameplay revolves around an economy and time management as it relates to the purchase of Tetris style pieces that you place on your personal board. Each piece you buy costs both currency, in the form of buttons, and time in the form the piece that you are placing. Players are forced to strategize against each other as they pick and choose their pieces. Each player can only choose one of the next three pieces, so you must decide if and what to allow the other player to purchase. As the game progresses, you must ramp up your button currency economy while placing as many pieces as you can. When the game concludes, your score is calculated by both the missing squares on your board and your current supply of buttons. I highly recommend this game to couples, as it was designed for two players. Otherwise, I'd say anyone who enjoys spacial reasoning and Tetris!

    5This game is for everyone not just quilt lovers!
    By FamilyandGames
    Very fun & interesting 2 player Tetris styled quilt builder. You don't have to be into quilts to like this game! We have fun every time we play this game. Neither of us are into quilting.

    You have your game board in the middle of the table with Tetris styled quilt pieces around it in a circle. You collect those quilt pieces to build your quilt and to earn buttons (money). Whom ever collects the most buttons at the end wins!

    By Stephen Gordon
    Very simple to learn. My ten year old understood the rules inside of five minutes. The surprise is the depth of strategy. You'll happily play this for years and still find room for improvement. Highly recommended.
