Quarto is a simple abstract game that should take about 15 mins. to play.
To win, complete a row of 4 pieces (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) that share at least one trait in common. The twist to the game is that you select the piece your opponent places on the board and vice versa.
Pieces have 4 traits each which are a combination of the following: Tall or Short Dark or Light Round or Square Hollow or Solid
Advanced (2×2) variant
In this variant, you also win if you finish a 2×2 block of any 4 pieces -- regardless of their traits.
