Product Description:

Quartex™ is an award-winning and engaging new abstract strategy tile game for the whole family. A board game and puzzle in one.

Play your tiles by matching and placing them beside other tiles already in play. If your tile completes a four-corner shape, you earn a point token of that color. But here’s the fun twist – as the number of tokens collected increases, their value decreases. Sometimes, less is more.

Because players decide where tiles are placed, the shape of every game of Quartex™ is unique! If you’re ready to outsmart the competition in this challenging game of shape-building, grab a few friends and enter the Quartex™!

Quartex™ is the second title in CSE’s line of strategic, easy-to-learn, family-oriented games developed by Toronto-native Tim W. K. Brown.

Quartex™ debuted at 2012 Gen Con in Indianapolis, IN. It received rave reviews and completely sold out. Gen Con Indy is the original, longest running, best attended, gaming convention in the world. Last year, more than 120,103 turnstile and 36,106 unique attendees experienced Gen Con Indy.

The Quartex™ official launch took place at Snakes and Lattes board game cafe in Toronto on Dec. 4th, 2012.

My Review:

This is the second game I've reviewed from CSE Games.  I'm currently running a giveaway for the first game NHL Fastrack

My family likes to play games together sometimes and we needed new ones. Quartex is a fun and unique game.  It's a game that makes you think and the game is never the same, it changes every time you play. 

I love that there is no board to play on, all of the pieces can be stored in the included draw string bag. The bag makes it easy to not only store the game, but take it with you. It's very easy to put the game in your purse or bag. This is a game that makes you think and can be a learning game for children.
