Quarto game (with custom pieces)

I first heard about this game sometime last year and immediately knew I wanted to make a few sets. This is my first version which I’m giving to my nephew who turns 10 next week!

Pieces are slightly different then traditional** Quarto pieces, but I wanted give it my own spin. Red tops and silver edged parts (on the tall pieces) were colored with Sharpie. Hex bolts are 1/4"-20 x 3/8 for short pieces and 5/8 inch for the tall pieces. I ran a tap through all the pieces before assembling.

Rules are on back of game board.

I love this game, simple but full of strategy! I love it even more now that someone has made a copy with their :glowforge:!


Nice! I happen to own an original Quarto and it’s a fun strategy game. I love the twist of choosing the piece for your opponent.

Yes, I didn’t really see how strategic that unique rule was going to come into play until I played a few games and the board was starting to fill up. Oooooh! :open_mouth: We’re enjoying this game.
