Calico is a beautiful strategy board game

In Calico, players compete to sew the coziest quilt as they collect and place patches of different colors and patterns.

Players will choose a personal design to follow, while trying to create color and pattern combinations that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also able to attract the cuddliest cats!

AEG is proud to co-publish Calico with our friends at Flatout Games. The Flatout Games team has also designed Point Salad and Truffle Shuffle for AEG!

Turns are simple. Select a single patch tile from your hand and sew it into your quilt, then draw another patch into your hand from the three available. If you are able to create a color group, you may sew a button onto your quilt. If you are able to create a pattern combination that is attractive to any of the cats, it will come over and curl up on your quilt! At the end of the game, you score points for buttons, cats, and how well you were able to complete your unique quilt pattern.
