3.0 out of 5 stars Simple concept, good strategy, flawed design., 6 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Qwirkle Game (Toy)
Purchased this for a friend. Any game which wins the Spiel De Jahres must be good, and it is. The fact that it is such a simple concept is a good thing, not a weakness. Nice that the pieces are wooden, and not cheap plastic. My only complaint, mentioned elsewhere in the reviews, is that the manufacturers have given no thought to those of us who are colour blind. Ticket to Ride (another award winning game) uses small symbols to help us out, and there's little reason why Qwirkle makers couldn't have done something similar. Even those who can see colour will probably struggle to distinguish between the red and orange tiles, particularly if playing in low light.

I've found the easiest solution to colours that look too similar, whatever the game, is to mark one of the colours with a dot in the centre of each piece. Hope this might help you too.

Good point, even for those of us who aren't colour blind. If you are playing in a dull room it can be pretty tricky to tell the red and orange apart.
