"A great game for two players."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

On the surface, Patchwork is a simple concept. Create a patchwork quilt using polyomino shapes each costing the games points and currency, buttons. The winner is the player with the most buttons. However; the added complexity of time, player position, difficult shapes and button management make this a very deep and enjoyable game indeed. With a relatively short playtime of 30 minutes or so and a low intensity, it's a great game to pull out on a quiet afternoon with a friend. Despite its complexity, young children (6+) can also enjoy this game, even if its teaming up with a parent. There is no required reading, simple addition and subtraction, and the bright colours, shapes and subject matter make it enjoyable for all.

"Great game, easy to learn and fun to play"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Our whole family has enjoyed this game. Its really simple to learn the rules and it has a great balance of strategy and luck as you try and fit the pieces on your player board. I highly recommend it.

"Both simple yet puzzling enough for both to enjoy"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game can be as competitive or as relaxed as the players want it to be. I have had so much fun playing this with my girlfriend. It is a simple game with a whole lot of strategy that can be put into it. Both players can get a sense of achievement from playing the game, and it gives both a great platform to spend time with each other. If you're looking for a game to play with your significant other, this is the game for you.

"Another Blinder From Uwe Rosenberg"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As a two played game, this works well, with things becoming more frenetic as you get closer to the end of the game and both you and your adversary trying to fill up as much board space as possible. The strategy is simple but has surprising depth and the game is easy to play and finish in 15 minutes or so. The newer game from Uwe, Cottage Garden, appears to be an upgrade on this, and has several other mechanics although the principle seems quite similar.

Description

Patchwork

Patchwork is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. In the past, it was a way to make use of leftover pieces of cloth to create clothing and quilts. Today, patchwork is a form of art, in which the designers use precious fabrics to create beautiful textiles. The use of uneven pieces of fabric in particular can result in real masterpieces and is therefore being practiced by a large number of textile artists.

To create a beautiful quilt, however, requires effort and time, but the available patches just do not want to fit together. So choose your patches carefully and keep a healthy supply of buttons to not only finish your quilt, but to make it better and more beautiful than your opponent's.
