Patchwork Express Board Game

Patchwork Express Board Game Patchwork Express features the same basic gameplay as Patchwork but with a smaller playing area and with larger and less complex pieces In the game each player tries to build the most aesthetic (and high-scoring) patchwork quilt on a personal 7x7 game board To start play lay out all of the light-colored patches at random in a circle and place a starting marker in a particular location Each player takes some buttons — the currencypoints 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 starting marker or passes To purchase a patch you pay the cost in buttons shown on the patch move the starting marker to that patch&39;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&39;re free to place the patch anywhere on your board that doesn&39;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&39;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&39;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&39;s more the time track depicts six 1x1 patches on it and during set-up you place six actual 1x1 patches on these spaces Whoever first passes a patch on the time track claims this patch and immediately places it on their game board At some point during the game dark-colored patches are added to what&39;s available for players to take and these pieces are smaller than the light-colored ones making it more likely that they&39;ll fill in holes on a player&39;s board Players 2Playing time 10 minsAges 6
