can only the active roller lock a row?
Kim says:

I found a comment on another site with rules from Gamewright. What we figured out was that when playing Qwixx Mixx the 12 or 2 will lock the row, but the lock - locks all boxes of that color regardless of which row they are in. So if you are the player that locks the row, you can't play any numbers before the 12 or 2, but if someone else locks the row, there is the possibility that you can have playable numbers in the row. Hopefully that makes sense.
Terry says:

While playing Qwik deluxe we encountered this problem. When you are locking out a color on the Qwik Mixx side does that mean you are locking out the entire row where the color you are locking is to the far right or are you locking out only the color blocks that you are locking out. Also, if you are locking out the color blocks only on the different rows, can you use the other color blocks to the left of the color blocks that are now locked out. I hope this makes sense. Thank you Terry Fund. Tlfundsr@hotmail.com

Do you have to roll a 2 or 12 to lock the color?

I saw this a the store the other day but couldn't remember the name of the game. I came here to lookup the game rules for another game and ran across this game. Must be fate and must be something I need to buy. :)
