Patchwork is an age-old form of needlework that involves piecing together small fabric scraps into a larger design. Originally, it was a way to repurpose leftover fabric scraps to create clothing and quilts. Today, patchwork has evolved into a form of art, with designers using high-quality fabrics to create stunning textiles. The use of unevenly shaped pieces of fabric can result in true masterpieces, which is why so many textile artists practice this craft.

To create a beautiful quilt, however, requires both effort and time. Choosing the right patches is crucial, as they must fit together perfectly to create a stunning design. You'll also need to keep a healthy supply of buttons on hand to not only finish your quilt, but to make it even more beautiful than your opponent's. So choose your patches carefully and get ready to create a work of art!

In this game, claiming a patch is never a sure thing, so you'll need to lay out your board with care. Building a beautiful quilt takes time and effort, but some patches just won't fit together no matter how hard you try. Both parents and kids will enjoy the challenge of competing to create the best quilt in this easy-to-learn game. With an average playtime of just 30 minutes, it's the perfect way to spend a fun-filled evening with the family. Add Patchwork to your game closet today!

How to Win
The game will come to an end once both time tokens have reached the last space on the time board. If a token were to go beyond the final space, it would stop at the last one. If you perform Action A, you'll only receive buttons for the number of spaces actually moved. To determine your total score, add up the value of any special tiles you have, then subtract two points for each empty space on your quilt board. The player with the highest score at the end of the game will be declared the winner. In the event of a tie, the player who reached the final space on the time board first will be the winner.
