Qwixx - A Fast Family Dice Game
Qwixx is a quick-playing dice game in which everyone participates, no matter whose turn it is. Each player has a scoresheet with the numbers 2-12 in rows of red and yellow and the numbers 12-2 in rows of green and blue. To score points you want to mark off as many numbers as possible, but you can mark off a number only if it's to the right of all marked-off numbers in the same row.
On a turn, the active player rolls six dice: two white and one of each of the four colors listed above. Each player can choose to mark off the sum of the two white dice on one of their four rows, then the active player can choose to mark off the sum of one colored die and one white die in the row that's the same color as the die. The more marks you can make in a row, the higher your score for that row. Fail to cross off a number when you're the active player, however, and you must mark one of four penalty boxes on your scoresheet. If you mark off the 2 or 12 in a row and have at least five numbers marked in that row, you get to also mark off the padlock symbol in that row, locking everyone else out of this color.
When either a player has four penalty boxes marked or a second color is locked, the game ends immediately. Players then tally their points for each color, sum these values, then subtract five points for each marked penalty box. Whoever has the highest score wins.

Your score sheet in this game is composed of 4 colored rows with 12 boxes each. Red and yellow are arranged in ascending order (2 through 12) while blue and green are arranged in descending order. The goal of the game is to cross out as many numbers as possible before the end of the game. The more numbers you cross off in a given row the more points you will score. The hitch is that numbers can only be crossed out left to right. For example, if 5 is the first number you cross out on the red row, you are no longer able to cross out the 2, 3, or 4. And if you skip the 6, 7, and 8 and cross out the 9, the numbers you skip are now unavailable to cross out.
Here is how a turn works: the active player rolls 6 dice (2 white, 1 each of red, blue, green, and yellow). The active player announces the sum of the 2 white dice and all players are able, if they wish, to cross out that number on any given row they choose. The active player also gets access to a second number: they may choose 1 white die and one of the colored dice and cross out that sum on the row of the colored die they chose. A penalty can affect the active player: if the active player only does not cross out a number on their turn, they receive a penalty worth -5 at game's end. There are some other rules about rows being locked and how the game ends, but it really is a very simple game and the rules, which come with several pictures and examples, will not be hard to understand.
Why do I think this is better than Yahtzee? First, it plays much quicker. The dice are only rolled once per turn so even if you are playing with the maximum 5 players, no one will have to wait long for a chance to roll the dice. Also, every player has the opportunity to benefit from every roll thus keeping players involved throughout the game. I also do not find it quite as frustrating as Yahtzee. I never thought rolling 2 6's on your first roll and not getting a single 6 on your next 2 rolls was fun. For some reason in Qwixx, even though it is a dice game, it feels like there are not as many instances where the dice just ruin your shot at winning. Players have a bit more control in deciding how to pursue their score and ending the game on their terms. No, Qwixx is not a highly skilled game where you will develop multiple strategies over time. But it is a fun, fast paced dice game with some interesting decision points you will begin to recognize after a few plays. It is easy to carry and play and can become a staple family activity. Highly recommended.
The only con is the paper score cards! When you run out of the scorecards, you have to buy more. I realized that it's really easy for iPhones because you can take a photo of the score card and in photos if you select "markup" you don't have to download any apps and you can just "write" on the phone screen without having to use the physical paper!
Rules are easy enough for everyone to understand and have fun with. Another bonus is that if you start a game, it’s VERY easy to stop as long as you remember who’s turn it was and start again later. This game will be coming with us in my “traveling box of fun” when we go places!
