Patchwork is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. In the past, it was a way to make use of leftover pieces of cloth to create clothing and quilts. Today, patchwork is a form of art, in which the designers use precious fabrics to create beautiful textiles. The use of uneven pieces of fabric in particular can result in real masterpieces and is therefore being practiced by a large number of textile artists. To create a beautiful quilt, however, requires effort and time, but the available patches just do not want to fit together. So choose your patches carefully and keep a healthy supply of buttons to not only finish your quilt, but to make it better and more beautiful than your opponents. 33 patches tiles, 50 button tiles, 2 quilt boards. For 2 players.

Players work to create a beautiful quilt, which requires effort and time, but the available patches just do not want to fit together!
Choose your patches carefully and keep a healthy supply of buttons to not only finish your quilt, but to make it better and more beautiful than your opponent‘s!
The use of uneven pieces of fabric can result in real masterpieces; textile artists love this game!
Players compete to build the most aesthetic (and high-scoring) patchwork quilt on a personal 9x9 game board.
To start play, lay out all of the patches at random in a circle and place a marker directly clockwise of the 2-1 patch. Each player takes five buttons — the currency/points in the game — and someone is chosen as the start player.
A classic game from renowned game designer Uwe Rosenberg.

Although the first few playthroughs irritated me, because of the wording of the rules and how vague it was, I really like this game.
Once I ironed out the rule hitches, for myself, it was a fun and enjoyable game of making a Tetris like game. I enjoyed the idea of resource management and how the position of your pawn determined how many goes you got per turn.
It's a clever game and is quite fun, with lots of counting and points spending involved. I'm happy with the game and hope to play more very soon.
To clarify, on the movement/score board when you pass a button, you collect buttons equal to the number of buttons on your quilt tile.
You have placed 5 pieces and two had buttons on them you collect the amount of buttons you see on those pieces. When you get to the next button you should have more pieces and there should be more buttons to collect.
If you can't play a piece you can still take your go as if you did, it's called passing, it doesn't cost you buttons but allows you to move.
This is my only major criticism as it really doesn't explain this scenario, which happened twice, once right at the end of the game!
In your turn you have 3 pieces to choose from, if you can't afford to buy or play any of the pieces then you must move forward till one space ahead of your opponent, you collect 1 button for each space you move this way.
*A variant of this is to simply move the tile selector pawn as you would normally but you don't get the tile, you do however move the number of spaces indicated, you will not receive or use any buttons this way* - I've used this particular method several times, it makes for a tough but interesting game.
The wife and i play a lot of board games
I find this game quite relaxing and it is quite quick after one game we find ourselves instantly agreeing to play another.
The satisfaction of a puzzle without spending hours trying to fill in the blue sky on a conventional puzzle.
When you first play you may get a minus score but don't be dissuaded as after a few games you will get much better.
None of us have managed to fill the complete 9x9 grid but we have got quite close (i was one square away and my wife was two in separate games).
Generally you are aiming to get the 7x7 bonus and filling in as much of your board as possible as any unfilled space is minus 2 buttons (buttons are how you score).
I would definitely recommend this game, for those more hardcore gamers it would be a filler (between) game for a couple of people when everyone else is eating.
As the saying goes you should never judge a book by its cover. This game is fantastic and plays very well. I have played it 5 times in 2 days with the girlfriend and she loves it too. Best two player game I have in my collection. Would highly recommended this game to anyone looking for a simple quick two player game.
She's not one for new games and new rules, and just wants to chill out and play...
This was one of 4 games we took away, and the one we played the most.
It's compact in the box but you need a good amount of space to play the game.
Time wise it's nice and compact each game taking 1/2 and hour or so.
Although simple to understand and learn, tactic wise, it's challenging.
Out of all the games we took away, this way the one we enjoyed the most and played the most.
Since we've been back home this has been played many times with the kids(3 boys) now enjoying it as well
Easy to learn, quick to play, tricky to master.
If you like playing around with shapes, planning tactical moves, or just having fun, this is a game you should definitely have a look at.
Even with my wife and I being avid gamers, Patchwork still hits the table plenty of times and certainly enough to be worth having in anyone's collection, because it's easy enough for smart kids to play but still plenty challenging for clever adults.
It plays through in around 20 minutes (once you're used to it), so a 'best of three' is a good start to an evening of gaming or before chilling out with a film.
The only downside is that it is just a 2 player game, though we easily adapted it for 4 players using house rules.
Watch a couple of playthroughs if you want, and then if you like the look of it - buy it!
I'm sure you won't regret it.
Also I couldn't recommend enough - get real buttons (you need about 60-80) for a really unique feel. Colourful mismatched ones that match the game setting.
With buttons for currency and beautiful patchwork style playing pieces this is a brilliant puzzle game that pits you against you opponent head to head to fight of the same pieces to complete your over patchwork quilt.
Great game for introducing new gamers, can be played as a quick filler or playing several games to kill an hour.
I love this game, my girlfriend is always up for a game and it's easy to teach!
An all round win of a game!
