Ages 6 and up.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.
Product review of Qwirkle

This is a great game for the entire family. It is challenging for all ages and can be modified for younger kids to participate. We found it to be lots of fun with a large crowd and just as fun with only a few people.
It's a great new game option for family gatherings and we have enjoyed it.
We played this as a family group and couldn't quit. We were all ages ranging from 83 to 11 and all could understand the instructions, learned the different strategies, loved the challenge. We were only going to play a while...but we couldn't pull ourselves away. It was easy for all of us to see the tiles and they weren't easily messed up by our younger hands. We all stayed focused as we looked for out best moves-only to be messed up by our neighbor- and have to tart again.
I had to have one for each of my married children.
