Qwirkle is like a picture based version of Scrabble for the visually inclined and lingustically-challenged who love a bit of strategic playing.
Why get the game?: It's fun for kid-on-kid play time...and adult-to-adult challenges.
Kids who play among themselves aged 5+ will love to match up the colors and shapes, earning points as they go along. Adults will love the challenge of formulating particular patterns and strategic moves to out-smart their opponents thereby earning bonus points for special configurations. Sound fun? It is. It's a simple game with a grown up challenge.Where to get it: Target and other toy stores ($25).
(or approx. $21 when you use the amazon.com box to the right of this posting. Just type "Qwirkle")
