2p only, 30 minutes, medium light gameRosenberg. Great 2 player game. Easy to learn and plays fast. My son is a big fan of this game. We've also bought and tried Cottage Garden, but we strongly prefer this one and have traded away Cottage Garden. The short playing time and the small sized box are ideal for trips/holidays, so this one will have amply playing time.
Do I even need to bother with a comment? Patchwork is so popular because Patchwork is so good. The only thing that would make it better is if it had bears. What's that you say? There might be a bear-centric game along the same lines?
This just feels like tetris the boardgame. I love how the game just flows so well and finding the right move in order for every piece to just fit perfectly is awesome. I love the mechanic of jumping so far for the piece you want, or in order to block you opponent from purchasing the piece they need, it just adds a whole other level of strategy in the game.
This game won us over because of how simple the design is but how clever and effective it is at the same time! I something wish it was a bit more colorful like some of the alternative artwork options on the digital version. However, this game is a great way to lure non-gamers to the table!
I'm very happy with this! It's a fun, easy-to-learn, quick game that is slyly strategic. I'm looking forward to more sessions. If it played just as well with more than two people, I'd have rated it a 10.
Great little two player puzzle that is elegant. All pieces have two costs, one of time and one of money, which are well balanced and allow you to always have an option to get a piece. The gallery of available pieces to buy rotates in a satisfying way to allowing you to circle around and buy the more expensive pieces that you weren't able to but the first time around. Finally, the main player board is just a fun little puzzle of trying to put all of the pieces in without leaving any gaps. The turns are quick and the games are short and don't overstay their welcome. There is plenty to be thinking and strategizing. As a final cherry on top, this game is relatively inexpensive. This is probably the best short two-player game in my opinion.
Really love this little game. Need more plays to figure out how much really comes down to luck. I could see that this game could REALLY bring about AP. ------- Upgraded to 9.5. The more I play the more strategies I see in this game. For such a simple rule set it really does reward multiple plays. A quick favourite in the family.
In a span of a few weeks, this game has climbed the ranks of becoming a favorite game for my wife and I. The title of a "couple's game" is really easy to bestow on it, especially with the theme, but really, anyone two people could play it. The sewing theme is just flavor. There's just enough decision making, and the ramping up that is done at the end is just spectacular. The obvious component upgrade is to get some real-life buttons to use as currency in place of the cardboard chits. Once you've gotten a few games under your belt, check out the strategy article that talks about button rates to take your game to the next level.
7/24/16: 7 to 8. Gets way more fun with time. 12/25/15: Not AS groundbreaking as I had been expecting. Patchwork is an abstract two-player game that -- so far -- seems to get reactions similar to "huh, neat" at the end. If I'm only playing with one other player I'd so hard rather be playing Jaipur, a game that seems just as simple and yet contains far more depth, fun, and camels. Patchwork doesn't have camels, Jaipur does.
Initial rating of 6.5 after first game. This is on the cusp of something i'd enjoy regular play of. +'s - elegant rules, interesting decisions, wife enjoys it -'s - felt a bit light If we play it more, i can see my rating increasing. Currently on loan to Jannine (20/6/2017)
Very fun 2 player game. Played it with the wife and she enjoys it even though she made fun of the theme when I brought it out : P. It's an Uwe Rosenberg game, so can't really expect much less.
I'm clearly in the minority on this one, but I do not like this game. It's a game-ified, competitive jigsaw puzzle, and I hate jigsaw puzzles. Will never play again, but understand why people like it.
Lovely little 2-player game, but the fun was reduced a bit when we discovered the 'formala' to select the optimal patch. Even after that, there is sufficient strategy to the game, but it doesn't hit the table quite as often.
Fun little game that you can play after or between some of the heavier games. Not much variability that make the game a bit blunt when playing too much of it in a short period of time.
A favorite, non-card 2p game. The juggling of the two currencies (buttons & time) makes for very interesting decisions. The 7x7 bonus tile, is basically a game-ender, but players have a lot of ability to deny their opponents of the prize. Suprisingly tactical, yet charming and light. After a handful of plays, I have found myself over-gaming the experience. Instead of playing the game as a light and casual one, I try to insert more strategy than is needed. Its just a little bit too light for me to love, but my wife likes it so we still play it occasionally.
Wonderful little game for 2, it's like playing Tetris against another person. The theme is a bit strange, but it fits and the game has a lot of strategy going on. I don't count plays for this game, because I hardly ever play the physical version of it, instead I play via app and I have multiple games running at all times and over 450 games completed.
