Mindware’s Qwirkle Board Game has quickly become a favorite around our house. Depending on who you are playing with it can be a simple matching game with colors and shapes for kids as young as 6 or an amazing strategy board game for older kids & adults. Perfect for the whole family!
The object of the game is to complete a Qwirkle (6 tiles in a row). You do that by building interlocking lines of tiles that are all one shape or all one color. This is a great game for brain development! Children learn:
- pattern recognition
- basic math skills
- strategy concepts
Qwirkle is Mindware’s most award-winning game
If you want proof of the power of Qwirkle, here it is! Here’s a list of the awards this popular board game has won:

- Major Fun Award

- The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval

I love the feel of the wooden tiles – the shapes are painted – not stickers that can peel off. I also love that they come in a cloth draw-string bag which means it’s a great travel toy.
The set includes 108 wooden tiles in six colors and six shapes, cloth storage bag and Qwirkle rules (also on our website if you lose them!). 2 to 4 players. Ages 6 & up.
