Patchwork: Review

Type: Light Strategy
# of Players: 2
Playtime: ~30 mins
Complexity: 1/5

This is my go to game for couples that want to try a new game.  The rules are extremely simple, but the depth is great.

Patchwork is a great strategic version of tetris.  You're spending your buttons(points) to purchase the best of 3 available pieces for your board(quilt) you need to think about the cost, shape, and future income each piece will give you.  You get some control of what your opponent will have access to.  You're try to save buttons, but race towards certain check points.  The goal is to collect as many buttons as you can while covering as much of your board as possible.

 I've yet to find a couple that hasn't enjoyed this game.

I give this game a 5/5
