In Pylos, you want to be one who places the final ball on top of the pyramid. Sounds simple enough, right?

At the start of the game, each player has fifteen balls, either light or dark, and they take turns placing them on a game board that has sixteen indentations on it in a 4x4 grid. Once four balls have been placed next to one another in a square, a ball can be placed on top of them, forming a second level of play. Players can then place balls on this second level, eventually allowing a ball to be placed on the third level – and once that level is full, which requires only four balls, a final ball can be placed on the fourth level, with that player winning the game.

If a player forms a square of his own color – that is, four balls placed next to one another on the same level – that player can remove one or two of his balls (that don't support anything) from anywhere on the board and place them in his reserve, thereby giving him more balls to place in the future. Whenever a player forms a square that's not entirely his own color, he can "stack" one of his pieces – that is, he can take any ball and place it on this square, locking some pieces in place and making a move without having to place a piece from his reserve.

The rules include a variant for children (that removes the square bonus) and one for experts (that allows a player to return 1-2 balls to his reserve when he creates a line of his color).

Quarto Classic
Quarto! has a 4×4 board and 16 pieces. Each piece has four dichotomous attributes – color, height, shape, and consistency – so each piece is either black or white, tall or short, square or round, and hollow or solid. The object is to place the fourth piece in a row in which all four pieces have at least one attribute in common. The twist is that your opponent gets to choose the piece you place on the board each turn.

Quixo Classic
Quixo bears a superficial resemblance to Tic-Tac-Toe – with one player being crosses and the other circles, and with both trying to create a line of their symbol – but that's where the resemblance ends. The pieces in the game are cubes that have a circle on one side, a cross on another, and blank faces on the other four; to set up the game, players place the 25 cubes with blanks face-up on the 5x5 grid in the game board.

Quoridor Classic
The abstract strategy game Quoridor is surprisingly deep for its simple rules. The object of the game is to advance your pawn to the opposite edge of the board. On your turn you may either move your pawn or place a wall. You may hinder your opponent with wall placement, but not completely block him off. Meanwhile, he is trying to do the same to you. The first pawn to reach the opposite side wins.

Quoridor Kid
View The game of mice and mazes has children scurrying their mice to the opposite side of the playing board. It is not a simple task though, as each player may move their mouse 1 space at a time or decide to install a "blocker" to delay their opponent. Yet the maze that is built may cause delays for every mouse, including their own, as it approaches the finish line. Quoridor Kid is 7 x 7 as opposed to Quoridor's 9 x 9. In a fine bit of confusion, at least one version of Quoridor Kid retains the name Quoridor while still utilizing the 7 x 7 board.

Wazabi!
You have a single goal in Wazabi! Get rid of your dice. The trap, though, is that the fewer dice you have, the more difficult the game becomes. Why? Because players can use the powers of the dice to give a die to another player, draw cards, or play a card, and these cards can remove dice from the game, give dice to another player, draw even more cards, or take many other assorted actions. Good luck!
