So here's the delema, we have gets from age 6 to age 17, we'd like to have a family game night, but what game can we all play and have fun? Monoply? Love the game, but for a lot time our youngest had to be on someone elses "team" in order to play. Candyland. Another great game, but the older guys aren't into it anymore. Scrabble. Yes, another classic game, but the younger ones still have a hard time spelling competetive words. Life, one of my most favroites, but again, a bit too old for the youngest.
So what does a family play?
We love this game! We got it about the end of the year in 2014. And we play it every chance we get! The concept, take the tiles marked by 6 shapes in 6 colors and arrange them in various rows so that either the 6 different shapes in one matching color, or 6 matching shapes in all 6 different colors. You get 1 point per tile with 12 points when you complete a Qwirkle; a row of 6. Sound a little complicated? It's not.
This game is super easy to play! No math or reading skills, just simple matching. Perfect for little ones. For the older guys, endless strategic possibilies make a game that is always changing. it really is a great game for the whole family to play!
This past Tuesday, we sat down again for a little Qwirkle and had a great time playing together as a family.
