Qwirkle Travel

£12.99

Qwirkle is MindWare’s must-have game and it is easy to see why! Simple to learn, yet strategic and exciting to play, Qwirkle is a favourite of all ages. For on the go gaming, try Qwirkle Travel.

All your Qwirkle needs, but easier to pack! It’s the same brilliant game, now travel sized. Aim for a complete set of 6 to score a Qwirkle!

What’s in the box?

  • 108 tiles
  • A drawbag

How to play:

On your turn, you complete three actions:
1. Place one or more tiles.
You may play multiple tiles on your turn as long as all tiles played are the same colour or the same shape and are placed in the same line. You cannot play two tiles that are exactly the same.

2. Tally your score.
One point is scored for each tile in a line that you create or add to. A single tile can score two points if it is part of two lines. Whenever you complete a line of all 6 colours or shapes, this is a Qwirkle! A Qwirkle scores 12 points, six for the tiles in the lines and six bonus points.

3. Draw tiles from the bag to replenish your hand to six.

When there are no more tiles to draw, play continues as before, but players do not replenish their hands. The first player to run out of tiles scores six bonus points and ends the game. The player with the highest score wins!

Bonus!

Qwirkle Travel reinforces problem solving and strategic thinking.

It comes in a handy travel bag for on the go gaming.

qwixx strategy board gameqwixx strategy board game

Qwixx

£9.99

A quick-playing dice game in which everyone participates, no matter whose turn it is.

To score points you want to mark off as many numbers as possible! The highest score wins.

What’s in the box?

  • 6 coloured dice
  • A scorepad
  • Four Pencils

How to play:

During the course of the game, the numbers must be crossed out from left to right in each of the four colour-rows. You can leave out numbers, but you can’t go back once you do.

The active player throws with all six dice. The following two actions are now carried out one after the other:

  1. The active player adds the pips of the two white dice together and says aloud, and in a clear voice, the sum that thereby results. Each player may then (but is not obliged to!) cross out the number that the active player has spoken out in any colour-row of their choosing.
  2. The active player may then add together the pips shown on just one white dice together with the pips shown on just one coloured dice of his choosing and cross out the number corresponding to this sum in the colour-row corresponding to the colour of the dice chosen.

To lock the row, you need to get at least 5 crosses in a row. This colour-row is now finished and closed off for all the players and no more crosses can be made in this colour in any of the subsequent rounds.

The game ends immediately as soon as someone has marked their fourth misthrow or as soon as two colour-rows have been completed and closed off.

The player with the highest total result is the winner.

Bonus!

Perfect size for on the go gaming!

Rock Paper Switch Party GameRock Paper Switch Strategy Game

Rock Paper Switch

£24.99

Capture your way to victory in this strategical game that combines the concepts of chess with the rules of classic rock-paper-scissors.

Watch out for switch tiles, they can change the game in a single turn!

What’s in the box?

  • 60 pawns
  • Gameboard

How to play:

On your turn, move one pawn in one direction according to the
pawn’s movement ability:

  • Rock pawns move any one direction up to three spaces. Rocks can only capture scissors.
  • Paper pawns move horizontally or vertically any number of spaces. Paper can only capture rocks.
  • Scissors pawns move diagonally any number of spaces. Scissors can only capture paper.

Capturing a pawn means you land on the space it is occupying and remove it. Players cannot capture more than one of their opponent’s pawns on a turn. Players may not “jump” over or move through any other pawns on the board.

If you land on one of the four “switch” spaces, you may switch that pawn with any other pawn of yours on the board. Switching pawns is optional — you may use the “switch” space as a regular space.

The last player to have at least one of each pawn (rock, paper and scissors) remaining on the board wins. As soon as one player loses all of their rocks or all of their papers or all of their scissors they are out of the game.

Schotten Totten Card GameSchotten Totten Components Card Game

Schotten Totten

£12.99

A warm spring breeze flows through the valley as the birds begin to sing and the snow slowly melts away. Your precious village is slowly uncovered and the stone lines that define your property become visible. The earth is soft and the stones could easily roll just a bit into your neighbour’s farm granting you the extra room your clan needs. No one will notice, right?

What’s in the box?

  • 54 clan cards numbered one to nine
  • 10 tactic cards
  • Nine stone tiles
  • Two player aids

How to play:

On your turn, choose a card from your hand and place it face-up next to a stone, on your side of the border. Once you have placed a card next to a stone, it cannot be moved. Then draw a card and play moves to your opponent. If the deck is empty, you continue playing without drawing cards.

Claiming a stone: After playing a card on a stone and before drawing, you can claim one or several stones. You can only claim a stone after each player has played three cards on their side of the border. To claim a stone, you must have a stronger combination of cards than those played by your opponent. These combinations, from the strongest to the weakest, are described as follows:

  • Colour run: three cards of the same colour and of three successive strengths
  • Three of a kind: three cards of the same strength
  • Colour: three cards of the same colour
  • Run: three cards of successive strength and of any colour
  • Sum: any three cards

To win, you either need to control three adjacent stones or five stones scattered along the Border!

Schotten Totten 2

£12.99

The war between clans is stronger than ever in this explosive sequel! Send your troops to the front line to either attack or defend your position, as the smallest breach in the wall will be fatal!

 

What’s in the box?

  • 60 siege cards
  • 10 tactical cards
  • Seven wall tiles
  • Three boiling oil tokens
  • Two player aid cards

 

How to play:

Sit across from each other and choose one player to be the attacker and the other to be the defender. Place the 7 wall tiles side-by-side. Shuffle the siege cards and make a face-down deck. Each player draws 6 siege cards to make their hand, which they keep secret from their opponent.

The attacker takes the first turn.

On your turn, play through these phases in order:

  • Take a preparation action (optional): as the attacker you can retreat from the wall and as the defender you can throw an oil cauldron to push the attacker back.
  • Play a card – choose a card from your hand and place it in front of a wall tile to gain an advantage.
  • Draw a card – draw the top card from the deck. After you have drawn your turn ends and your opponent begins their turn.
  • Declare control (attacker only – optional): at any time during their turn, the attacker can declare control of any wall tile(s) where they have a complete formation. A formation is complete as soon as there are as many cards as rectangles drawn on the tile.

The attacker wins the game if they declare control of a damaged wall tile, or if they damage a fourth wall tile.

Or, when the last card in the deck is drawn, the attacker gets one last turn to try to win. If they don’t succeed, the defender wins.

Bonus!
