The board game Qwirkle is not new this year, in fact it has been around for a couple years, but it is currently one of the best selling games for the 2009 holiday season. So if you don’t already own this game, you may want to give it a look.
Qwirkle was a Mensa Best Mind Game Award winner in 2007. Designed for 2-4 players age 6 years old and up, the average game is around 45 minutes. Game play is similar to the strategy of Scrabble and the visual element of dominoes as you create columns and rows of matching colors and shapes.
