Wishlists

In Patchwork, two players compete to build the most aesthetic (and high-scoring) patchwork quilt on a personal 9x9 game board. To start play, lay out all of the patches at random in a circle and place a marker directly clockwise of the 2-1 patch. Each player takes five buttons — the currency/points in the game — and someone is chosen as the start player.

On a turn, a player either purchases one of the three patches standing clockwise of the spool or passes. To purchase a patch, you pay the cost in buttons shown on the patch, move the spool to that patch's location in the circle, add the patch to your game board, then advance your time token on the time track a number of spaces equal to the time shown on the patch. You're free to place the patch anywhere on your board that doesn't overlap other patches, but you probably want to fit things together as tightly as possible. If your time token is behind or on top of the other player's time token, then you take another turn; otherwise the opponent now goes. Instead of purchasing a patch, you can choose to pass; to do this, you move your time token to the space immediately in front of the opponent's time token, then take one button from the bank for each space you moved.

In addition to a button cost and time cost, each patch also features 0-3 buttons, and when you move your time token past a button on the time track, you earn "button income": sum the number of buttons depicted on your personal game board, then take this many buttons from the bank.

What's more, the time track depicts five 1x1 patches on it, and during set-up you place five actual 1x1 patches on these spaces. Whoever first passes a patch on the time track claims this patch and immediately places it on his game board.

Additionally, the first player to completely fill in a 7x7 square on his game board earns a bonus tile worth 7 extra points at the end of the game. (Of course, this doesn't happen in every game.)

When a player takes an action that moves his time token to the central square of the time track, he takes one final button income from the bank. Once both players are in the center, the game ends and scoring takes place. Each player scores one point per button in his possession, then loses two points for each empty square on his game board. Scores can be negative. The player with the most points wins.

    5/5
    Patchwork est un jeu à 2 joueurs rapide, joli et très addictif. Et il est signé Maitre Uwe Rosenberg, l'un des grands noms du jeu de gestion à qui l'on doit les fameux Agricola, Caverna, Ora & Labora ou encore Le Havre. Et pourtant, malgré sa capacité à nous inventer des jeux profonds et ardus, le voilà également capable de créer un petit jeu de Tétris revisité avec de la gestion de ressource (des boutons) et de temps ! Et ne croyez pas que ce jeu est simple, car les premières parties laissent souvent un douloureux souvenir lorsque vient le moment du décompte.
    Une excellente trouvaille qui ravira tous les amoureux de jeux rapides, stratégiques et tactiques. Je ne peux que vous le recommander. L'absence de texte sur le jeu et les règles très simples permettent en prime de profiter de ce jeu malgré une édition étrangère.

Parfaitement apres avoir regarder les explications sur youtube j'ai finalement achetet ce jeu. Alors en angalis ou en allemand ca n'a pas d'importance puisqu'il n'y a pas de textes a lire et on trouve la regle traduite sur le net... Dommage encore une fois qu'une societe francaise ne fasse pas le necessaire pour traduire et distribuer ce henre de jeu bien sympa...

    Très bon jeu pour 2 personnes. Règles simples mais il y a de la stratégie.

    Très bon petit jeu a deux ! Parties rapides, un peu de tactiques entre la gestion des boutons (monnaie du jeu) et le placement de son token temps, sans compter le placement de ces patchs ! Je recommande a tous ceux qui recherche un jeu tranquille pour deux, sans prise de tête et avec un minimum de strategie a court terme (ne vous arrêtez pas au thème) :)

    Honnête jeu de placement de tuile façon "puzzle" pour 2 joueurs. Ca tourne bien c'est rapide. Sans être trop cérébral le jeu est un peu froid au niveau ambiance.

    Excellent jeu à 2 ; l'ordre du tour géré en fonction du "capital temps' utilisé par chacun des joueurs fonctionne parfaitement.

    Jeu très original, rapide, peut être joué cool ou avec pas mal de réflexion et de choix. Beau matériel, avec de vrais boutons, cela aurait été encore mieux!!

    Grosse claque attendue... grosse claque ludique reçue. C'est rapide, poétique, joli. ça se joue vite, à deux. Uwe sort de son thème de prédilection et nous pon un p'tit jeu vraiment très sympa.
