If there were a popularity contest for games, QUARTO! would be class president, prom king and head cheerleader all rolled into one.
The object of one of the world’s most award-winning games is seemingly simple: outwit other players by lining up four pieces with common characteristics. But, as with all good-for-your-brain games, there’s a catch: your opponent chooses the piece you play with.
QUARTO! not only tests your strategic, visual perception and deductive reasoning skills, this handsome, crafted-from-wood game also looks cunningly cute on a coffee table. Smart and sexy. Head cheerleaders everywhere would be jealous.
The IdeaGetting four in a row is easy, but not so much when your opponent picks what you play.
The BrainsTest your judgment and organizational skills to outwit your opponent.
The A-HaA player can win with four in a row of any attribute: size, shape, color, or top.

How To Play
How to Play:
There are 16 pieces that do not belong to either player.

How to Win:
The first player to put down a piece that creates a row of four pieces that contain the same trait is the winner. For example: any four round pieces in a row is a win, any four solid pieces in a row is a win, any four dark pieces in a row is a win, etc.Download PDF Rules Of The Game
