Quartex is an engaging new abstract strategy tile game for the whole family.

Play your tiles by matching and placing them beside other tiles already in play. If your tile completes a four-corner shape, you earn a point token of that color.

But remember – as the number of tokens collected increases, their value decreases. Mind-bending or what?

Because players decide where tiles are placed, the shape of every game of Quartex is unique! If you’re ready to outsmart the competition in this challenging game of shape-building, grab a few friends and enter the Quartex!

  3. […] Quartex is a tiling game that shares a lot of features with another Major Fun game: Cirplexed. Both games require players to draw tiles and play them on the grid that forms in the center of the table. Players score points for the patterns that they complete where the corners of the tiles come together. In Quartex there are four shapes that the tiles can make: yellow circles, purple crosses, red squares, and blue stars. Despite these similarities, there are a few significant differences that make Quartex Major Fun in its own regard. […]
