I would give this game 5 (it is fantastic for all ages!) if Mindware had only taken red-green colorblindness into consideration when designing it. Colorblindness affects 8% of the male population. (More common than people with AB blood group). Three members of our family are colorblind and our neighbor is too. Because the colors Mindware has chosen have the exact same intensity, the blue and purple look the same, as do the orange and green. This means several members of our family cannot join and play. If Mindware had used slightly different hues (e.g. a pastel blue or a deeper green, the tiles would have been distinguishable for red-green colorblind people and at least 8% more people could enjoy this game!

Good game but requires adult supervision

The scoring seems very complicated for the young ones. Good quality, good concept, hoping she'll grow into it and like it more down the road.

We have all enjoyed playing Qwirkle. I am not sure that it will stand the test of time.

we all found the directions to be very confusing. also, the bag always opens up spilling all the pieces. a way to close seal the storage bag would be beneficial.

The scoring was too compligated. Include an alternate scoring system: One point for shape, one point for color, three points for both, all adjacent tiles to bae counted.

NOT friendly if you have color-blind kids! I had to take out a marker and write 'P' on all the purple pieces, and the green/orange/red are also a challenge (but my boys can tell those apart). It's still a good game and lots of fun, but I don't like the color choices for the pieces.
