About this deal
Anyway, if you are looking for a game to brighten an evening you are spending with a friend, Patchwork is there to help you out! Interestingly, there is no limit of players so long as you have sheets, meaning it’s accessible to a large group.
For example, in a 6×4 rectangle, you’d score 16 for the 4×4 square plus two for the rows not in the square, so 18 in total. On top of this, because you can only choose from three predetermined patches each time, and your opponent’s choices are directly affected by your selection, you have to decide whether to focus on your own gains or frustrate theirs. The player whose time token is further behind on the time board takes as many turns as necessary until their token passes their opponent’s.
The downside is, if I really like a two-player only game I can’t pull them out for the average game night, but it gives Christin and I something interesting to play when it’s just the two of us.
The grave token replaces the patch you just picked to show the trio of spooktastic patches available next. Once a certain number of cards have been played, the round ends, players score points, then you lay out more cards for the next round.When a player takes an action that moves this time token to the central square of the time track, they take one final button income from the bank.
