From the Publisher...

DESCRIPTION AND PREPARATION - A board with 16 squares.
- 16 different pieces each with 4 characteristics : light or dark, round or square, tall or short, solid or hollow.
At the start of the game, the pieces are arrenged at the side of the board.

To establish a line of four pieces, with at least one common characteristic on the board.
The line of pieces may be accross the board, up and down, or along a diagonal.

- The players throw dice to see who starts.
- The first player selects one of the 16 pieces and gives it to his opponent.
- That player places the piece on any square on the board; he must then choose one of the 15 pieces remaining and give it to his opponent.
- In his turn, that player places the piece on a empty square, and so on...

The game is won by the first player to call “QUARTO !”.
1. A player calls “QUARTO !” and wins the game when, as he places the piece given to him:
-> He creates a line of 4 light pieces or 4 dark pieces or 4 round pieces or 4 square pieces or 4 tall pieces or 4 short pieces or 4 solid pieces or 4 hollow pieces.
Different characteristics can accumulate.
-> He does not need to have placed the 3 other pieces himself.
-> He must declare his win by calling “QUARTO !”.
2. If this player has not noticed the alignment and passes a piece to the opponent:
-> The latter may “at that moment” call “QUARTO !” and indicate the alignment:
He wins the game.
3. If none of the players sees the alignment during the move during which it is created, it loses any value and the game continues.

- Game winner: A player who calls and points out a “QUARTO !”.
- Game even: All the pieces have been placed and no winner declared.

- From 10 to 20 minutes. In a tournament, each player may be allocated a time limit of 1 minute per move.

Until you are familiar with the game, you can play with 1,2 or 3 features as line criteria. For exemple: Create on the board a line of 4 pieces of the same colour. (just one feature chosen).

The objective of the game is to create a line or a square of 4 pieces having at least one common feature. There are then 9 additional ways of calling “QUARTO !”.
