(8/10 Stars)

Qwixx is a simple dice game that provides lots of fun. Published by Gamewright, the game fits in very well with their other family friendly games.  Qwixx is easy learn and fun for kids as well as adults.  The game is very straight forward and players will always be engaged in the game even if they aren't the one rolling the dice.  The game provides solid mechanics that keep all players on the edge of their seats hoping for the numbers they need.  It feels like Yahtzee meets Bingo and they had a colorful child named Qwixx.  

The game can help children develop simple math skills and sequence understanding.  While the game won't be providing a huge amount of strategic depth, you will need to understand and follow basic strategy.  The game is enjoyable as a light dice game should be and with nice short play times will keep players coming back for more.  The quality of dice, instructions, and scoring pad are fantastic and would make a great gift to someone who enjoys games such as Yahtzee, Farkle, Pass the Pigs, and Bingo.  Push your luck and cross of a number, Qwixx will definitely be played many times at my house and that is How Lou Sees It!
