Great game

We love the board game and this app is a very good simulation. Good levels of difficulty. Quite hard to beat on expert level especially if tiles don’t fall lucky for you. Have not played more than two player yet but have played online without any real problems including with family members over wi-fi in same home, wi-fi with players in two different locations and also using mobile data. Takes a bit of fiddling about to set up via Game Center and need to take care to choose the right online game if more than one is shown open. To play with family/friends must choose and set up as friends (not just choose online game) and invite family member/friend to play. Also obviously if want use mobile data must ensure mobile data is switched on: on the device, for the app and for Game Center. Sept 2018. iOS 12 on iPad mini, iPhone 7 and iPhone X.

Regarding the reviewer comment about not being able to “roll” the tiles, that is a different version of the board game called Quirkle Cubes. We prefer that version of the board game and it would be great if this app could be expanded to include the “cubes” version of the game or if Quirkle Cubes could be developed as a separate app.

Great game, but missing statistics.

It's a great game and very addictive, but for me it's lacking statistics.

It'll be great if I can view the amount of games I've played on each level; how many games I've won and lost. My best score of Qwirkles in a game and the overall amount. My best score from a game and what my best score from a single turn was.

I feel that if there was an option to view these statistics then this would improve this app. You would also be able to compare them with friends and see who is the better player.

Good, but needs update

This is an adequate rendition of a favourite board game. The actual game play is good too.

However, the user interface for the managing current games definitely needs attention. Inviting new players is really difficult, often games do not show up on launch because the GameCentre linking is very slow. No clear indication which games are waiting for you to move and the interface on the iPhone is even worse.

Please make some improvements and don’t let this great game down.
