Thinking "tic-tac-toe"? Well, think again! Even though Quarto's rules are grasped in one minute, they are the first step of a long journey through its strategic depth. Your goal: be the first one to line up four pieces sharing the same attribute. Simple indeed, but wait, there's a twist!
On your turn, you do not choose which piece you play. Your opponent does. As the board fills up, tension grows and options narrow. But one thing is certain: you want to stand on the receiving end of the winning piece.
Beautiful and captivating, Quarto is as much a game as it is a piece of art. While its intriguing design will fascinate your friends and family, it is the satisfaction of a cunning victory that will keep them coming back for more.

"Teaching Quarto should take all of about 30 seconds, but it’s a game that can easily turn into a brain burner. If you like thinking four moves ahead, and on different levels, then this is the game for you."
