by Corey Whelen
31 July 2019

2-4 Players, 10-20 Minutes, Low Complexity, Low Strategy

Parka Pete balances delicately atop his lovingly made igloo, frozen in horror as his home is slowly surrounded by Antarctica's most fearsome predators- penguins with ice picks.

Qwirky, Qwick, and oh so Qool: A Qwirkle Review

by Corey Whelen
4 July 2019

2-4 Players, 30 Minutes, Low Complexity, High Strategy
