Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Qwirkle Board Game (Toy)
I was trying to find a game to play with a client who has dementia and ran across this in an article. After I bought it I tested it out with my kids (25, 24, 19 and 11) and myself (47). We had so much fun!! It is one of those games that can be played at different levels. We started getting quite inventive on where and when to play to maximize our points and block our opponents.

I then played with my client. She and I did not keep score. We just made the chains with either shapes or colors and added wherever she first recognized a play. No trying to strategize where to build for future etc. We also played with both of our tiles up so we could talk about the best places to play. She likes this game and actually remembers having played before and wants to play again. The 'rules' have to be re-learned but the fun remains.

For one more note, we had a group of my daughters friends over and four of us played Quirkle. They were all 19 - 22. That got pretty cutthroat <lol> They all want to play again.

I HIGHLY recommend this game. I think I'm going to buy a 2nd one so more than 4 can play together (We played with 5 first night and it does work too).

What a great review! (and what a lucky client you have to have such a thoughtful and caring person looking after them)

Thank you for mentioning that you play with the tiles up with your dementia client. I was actually looking at this for my Alzheimers client, and your input is invaluable.

I'm happy to see it was beneficial. I love the game and it works on so many levels, with so many mindsets. Hope it works well for you!
