Calico board game
Calico board game


Calico is a puzzly tile-laying game of quilts and cats. In Calico, players compete to sew the coziest quilt as they collect and place patches of different colors and patterns. Each quilt has a particular pattern that must be followed, and players are also trying to create color and pattern combinations that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also able to attract the cuddliest cats!

Turns are simple. Select a single patch tile from your hand and sew it into your quilt, then draw another patch into your hand from the three available. If you are able to create a color group, you may sew a button onto your quilt. If you are able to create a pattern combination that is attractive to any of the cats, it will come over and curl up on your quilt! At the end of the game, you score points for buttons, cats, and how well you were able to complete your unique quilt pattern.

    #Calico huh? I was just thinking it's a shame I have 2 cats and no games themed around cats to teach them lol.

    What did you like about it?

    Played #Calico on Tabletopia recently, seems like a fun little puzzly game I should consider buying! #Jixia Academy at #4 puzzles me, with all the love that #Hanamikoji gets, I thought buying it would be a no brainer?

    I was also taught and played #500 with some friends, but that game has some unintuitive rules.  I guess most traditional trick-taking games have some weird twists, but with that one in particular I had a hard time internalizing those oddities.  I like all of these games, and will tend to want to play the card games more often than the others, but overall, I think I enjoy puzzly, action-taking games a little more.

    Played a few games of #Calico and #Truffle Shuffle this weekend, and a game of #Wingspan.  Cailco and Truffle Shuffle were new to me and my wife; we both enjoyed them more than I think we were expecting.  My local comic shop started carrying more board games recently, and we happened upon both there on Saturday.
