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.

  • The default polyomino board game, light and simple and still fun! Would have liked it better if I wasn't introduced to roll n write world. As it is patch work took quite some space so it's hard to get it outside
  • This is a light, relaxing game. Even when playing aggressively, the light blocking isn’t enough to keep this feel from feeling largely like a solitaire-ish experience. It runs a little longer than i feel it probably should. Wish there was more interaction (though maybe cottage garden would have more).Maybe house rules for variable end game scoring bonuse objectives (quilt size/shape, variations) would make this a little more interesting. Will revisit after more plays.
  • Simple to teach. Not a game that has me trying to eke out the perfect strategy. I'm happy to just go with the flow. A light distraction, but a fun one.

After all that, I can safely say I don't particularly care about designers haha. I was surprised I knew a couple of them off the top of my head.

Light but fun week this week!

  • #Patchwork x4 @ 2-players (duh) - I had a friend of mine over on Tuesday night and he had very little experience with games and I intended to play this as a warmup game but he just loved it! Got 4 plays in and I won the first three but he snagged the last one!
  • #Space Base @ 4-players - I did not think I would like this one as much as I did. The artwork did nothing for me and the pics I saw just seemed like a jumbled mess but the game was fun! A little luck dependent but there are ways to mitigate which helped! I would play again for sure....it may have helped that I won lol. 

I played #Beyond the Sun, which has become one of my favorite games. Also played #Gods Love Dinosaurs, #Legends Untold: Weeping Caves Novice Set and #Patchwork. It has been a really active and diverse week :) 

1. I found BGA through a few board game Instagram people I follow. 

2. Probably 6 years. Started with #Catan #Ticket to Ride: Europe and #Munchkin Booty

3. My wife and I have played one of these three games almost every night since the pandemic started. #Kingdomino #Patchwork or #Sagrada

#Patchwork is a good one! Without looking at all the other pieces to compare relative costs..and without knowing anything about how to properly balance a game lol, I'd say they seem reasonable. Might take a few rounds of playtesting to totally suss it out like you said.

Also, nice job with them. I'm sure it's way easier than I think but what did you use to make them?

Ohhh I like this question Phil!

I think I would go for three categories: Party, Games I play with my wife, and Heavy

This comes out to $189 retail, but I think it give a wide range of games to play, my only gap would be a game for when we have couples over to play games with us. Something like Quacks or Carcassone would fill that but I think this set up is a good place to start if I were to restart! I did strongly debate just doing a bunch of #Too Many Bones because I have been playing that quite a bit but decided against it since that would take my whole budget lolol.
