Coffee table classic
July 16, 2001

My wife is especially fond of games that can be set out on the coffee table and look like they belong there. Something simple, elegant, and well-crafted. Quarto! is the very model of a modern coffee table game.

In years past, one might see a chess set gracing the table of a sophisticated and prosperous man. Who has time for chess nowadays? Quarto! seems to fill the bill nicely for the next millenium.

The game itself is described more than adequately elsewhere. Kasey and I always play with the optional rule that either four in a row or a 2x2 square of a similar aspect is a win. This almost doubles the number of possible winning positions, making it that much harder to plan too far ahead.

The only reason that this does not get full marks is because it falls somewhat short on the fun factor. I have never been a huge fan of abstract positional games, in which camp Quarto! is definitely a member. It is, however, one of the very best of that genre, and one that I actually like. I just don't love it.

If you want a lighter thinking game, Quarto! is the game for you. Recommended.
