The fine art of competitive quilting.
Mike: Yeah, it’s basically two-player Tabletop Tetris.
Mike: The art conveys the quilt theme adequately enough. By the end of a game you have the feeling you’ve been working on a nice little bedspread. That’s if you haven’t left too many stray holes along the way!
|Couple of holes! I know!|
Mike: Along those same lines, the ability to sabotage your opponent by limiting their choices is the most satisfying thing about the game. Determining the manner in which your nemesis is building their quilt and then laying booby traps for them is the key. Deeply satisfying evil gameplay! That’s everything I want in a game!
|Sure, it's pretty, but in the immortal words of Admiral Ackbar:|
"Its a trap!!!"
Mike: Well, I got one thing wrong. I thought, for some ridiculous reason, that the player could only set the piece in the quilt with its face up as it was presented in the circle. (basically I thought the pieces were one sided, they are not!) It limited my options for the entire first game and some of the 2nd. Scroll below to see how that advantage worked out for Susan! (hint: Not too well!)
Mike: Definitely a good coffee game. Easy setup, easy clean up, short time spend. I anticipate several Sunday hangover mornings with this one!
