Calvin’s Commentaries: Partido
That is one of the reasons to like Partido by designer Nick Ryan.
Partido is a tile laying game with a simple objective. “Match as many shapes as you can to score points. The first player to 21 points wins.”
The games can be learned in about three minutes.
“The first player draws one face down tile and tries to match one or more of the shapes on their tile with any existing tiles on the playing area.
“If two or more shapes are matched, one point is awarded for every completed shape (two, three or four). Never one,” details the simple rules.
If it was a longer game in a facet it would edge toward more effort than the game warrants, but as it is, it’s great.
Think of this one as a filler game, or conversational one for a small group, it plays two to five, which will remind a bit of Quartex in its play, a tile-laying game I also highly recommended some time ago.
