I bought this game for our family for New Year's. I knew I wanted to buy Qwirkle but was torn on which version to get. I purchased this version since it sounded like it was a little more challenging and you could roll the dice which would change the outcome of your hand. My 3 boys (ages 10, 8 and 6) love this game as do me and my husband. I was amazed at how quickly my 8 year old caught on to the strategy of the game. My six year old gets it too but I usually have to help him out a little. My boys usually come home from school and want to play a game of Qwirkle. It is a game that can be played in less than an hour and it is fun! It does require some thinking which I appreciate as a mom. I highly recommend this game!!!

Setting aside the fact that Qwirkle (the tile version) has won the Major Fun Keeper Award, and resisting any attempt to compare Mindware's Qwirkle (the tile version) to Mindware's Qwirkle Cubes (the dice version), let us proceed as if there were no precedent, and treat Qwirkle Cubes for the unique game it really is. O, sure, we could compare. We could even contrast. But we shall set these temptations aside, for the nonce, at least.

Qwirkle Cubes comes in a Qwirkle Cubes box that is cleverly cube-like. Open the cleverly cube-like box and you find a sturdy cloth drawstring bag, under which are packaged 90 wooden cubes. You release the cubes from their plastic wrappedness, allowing them to cascade onto the table and make a pleasingly muted woodish sound. You fondle them, because they, in their lovingly polished one-inch, wooden, dice-like way, almost beg you to do so. You roll them, observing how each die has a different shape on each face, all of the same color. And, further, how there are six different colors of dice. And then you place all 90 of these smoothly finished colorful cubes into the bag, as instructed.

You are now ready to play. So you, and another, or perhaps 2 or 3 others, take turns extracting 6 dice from the bag. You place those dice in front of you. Perhaps you give them one more roll, just to celebrate the randomness of it all. And so the game begins.

You all look at your dice. Do you notice perhaps a pattern? Are some of your dice of the same color, and each of those dice showing a different shape? Are more of your dice all showing the same shape, and each a different color? Whoever has the longest of either of the aforementioned goes first.

Ok, I'll try to keep this short. Quirkle is a great game. I like Quirkle Cubes more. It's more enjoyable to just re-roll than have to throw everything back in the bag and redraw new pieces.

I had difficulty rating this game, because I really do like the game, but not the way it was made. Wood is a fine material for many things, but it makes washing a board game difficult and can damage it. So, wood games appear to wear out faster for me, even though I make everyone wash their hands before playing them. I wish they'd used the same material used to make regular dice. Also, while I get that the box is made to look like a cube, it just makes it harder to store with my other games and transport to board game clubs. It's always the odd duck that doesn't fit and I have to put it on top of everything else.

All that being said, I could still give this game a 4/5 if it weren't for the decals they put on the cubes. Instead of using etchings, stickers, durable paint, or any number of options that would last a long time, they chose decals. After one game (and not washing or even wiping the cubes) I've already had decals peal away. As a result, it's difficult to tell what the symbols are.

I've decided that while I like the game, I don't like the materials so much that I'm not going to play the game with the cubes they provide. I'm going to buy a bunch of black dice with white pips and color 15 of each in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Then I'll play the game with colored dice using pips and colors instead of shapes and colors. It's worth the extra durability to me. I can also buy 100 black dice for less than the cost of the game. But, it's not a total loss. I have the printed instructions from the game.

This is an excellent mind exercise "game". Although 4 could play, it's probably better with 2 since that provides an opportunity for more defensive strategy. At the same time, it could easily become an intergenerational activity since all you have to be able to do is recognize colors and shapes.

We started out with Qwirkle the original and later added the cube version to our collection. Both games are good for your brain. If simple is better for you I recommend sticking with the original. But if you've tried the original and really enjoyed it you will probably like this even more. My five year old son and I play this and we both enjoy it. It's a good multigenerational game.

Qwirkle is one of the best games out there in my opinion. It is very easy to play yet levels the playing field for everyone from three year olds to grandmas. Qwirkle Cubes is a beautifully-made game that fits nicely in its box (thank you Mindware). The cubes are smaller than I expected - the size of large dice - but perfectly appropriate for the game. Love it!
