For tips on how to play patchwork, see Tips_patchwork

Setup

  • Each player takes a 9×9 quilt board and 5 buttons as currency.
  • The time tokens are put at the start of the board.
  • Special patches are also placed.
  • Place the regular patches in a circle.
  • The neutral pawn starts after the 1×2 patch.

Game play

  • The player whose time token is behind takes the next turn.
    • If they are on the same space, the previous player takes another turn.
  • On your turn, you can either receive buttons or place patches.
  • If you choose to receive buttons, move to the space one step further from your opponent.
    • You receive 1 button for each space moved.
  • If you choose to place patches, choose a patch at most three steps clockwise from the pawn and move the pawn to there.
    • Pay buttons and advance time according to price, and place it on your quilt board.
  • If while moving you pass a special patch, take it and place it on your quilt board. They are the only 1×1 patches.
  • If you pass a button, you receive income.
    • Take buttons equal to the number of buttons on your quilt board.
  • If you are the first to have a 7×7 square on your quilt board, take the special tile.

End of the Game

  • The game ends when both players move to the last space.
    • Any spaces beyond are forfeited.
  • Each leftover button is worth 1 point.
  • The special tile is worth 7 points.
  • Each empty space on your quilt board is worth -2 points.
  • The player with the most points wins.
  • If it’s a tie, the player who moves to the last space first wins.
