In Calico, players compete to sew the coziest quilt as they collect and place patches of different colors and patterns. Each quilt has a particular pattern that must be followed. Players try to create color and pattern combinations that are able to attract the cuddliest cats!
Turns are simple:

  • Select a single patch tile from your hand and sew it into your quilt. Then draw another patch into your hand from the three available.
  • If you are able to create a color group, you may sew a button onto your quilt and gain 3 VP
  • If you are able to create a pattern combination that is attractive to any of the cats, it will come over and curl up on your quilt!
  • Design goals give you additional points for colour and pattern combinations
  • At the end of the game, you score points for buttons, cats, and how well you were able to complete your unique quilt pattern

    Not only does Calico have a adorable art design, it compliments it with a easy to play but meaningful deep gameplay, which keeps the game very engaging to play.
