"Qwirkle" (not strangling by saying it out loud) is therefore related to the dominoes even if the hard-core will argue that here, the pieces have only one data. The game consists of pieces of six different shapes and colors, or 36 pieces, all present in three copies for a total of 108 pieces. As with dominoes, the principle is as simple as it can be. One piece should be placed after another, as long as it has the shape or colour in common. As in "Genial" , the player then scores as many points as there are now in the completed line.
Well, there are still some constraints. It is not possible to place a green square in a line where there is already another green square (and the same for colors). A line cannot be more than six pieces long. On the other hand, it is quite possible that the same piece fits into two different lines (and there, inevitably, one of the two lines must be considered a column ...) to score all the more points. It is even possible to place several pieces in turn, provided they are placed in the same line (or column if you followed...). Oh, yes! in front of him, a player always has six pieces. It is up to him to know how to keep it from one turn to the next, or not.
By making a Qwirkle (ah if, eventually, one day it may one day be in the dictionary), i.e. a six-piece line, a player gets a six-point bonus. The goal is of course to be the one with the most points at the end of the game.
