Ever played Dominoes? Now imagine a game that is more fun, more strategic, super affordable, not to mention pocket-sized and perfect to whip out at any occasion.
Quadrum is latin for 'square' and the game consists of 24 square tiles with a symbol in each corner (from a choice of three different symbols). Each possible combination of the three symbols is represented exactly once. During the game the players need to play their tiles to the table so that the symbols match up.
It's super simple to learn, but you can happily spend hours playing (we know from personal experience!). Our play-testers have thought so too, so we're confident that if you pledge for Quadrum, you won't regret it. In fact, we're so confident, we'll guarantee you'll love it.
Veldi Games is just two sisters who love games, and couldn't resist making their own. You can meet our team on our website.
You can read more about the project below - but you can test the game online now here.
Exclusively online during the Quadrum Kickstarter campaign, you can now play the game online! It's never been easier to try before you buy. Play against yourself or find a buddy to get competitive. If we make the stretch goal then we'll develop it into a free app for all pledgers, and you'll be able to play against the computer.

How to set up
Shuffle the tiles and deal 12 to each player face up. The tiles remain face up the entire game.
How to win
The player who plays all their tiles first wins.
How to play
The player with the most four-of-a-kind tiles goes first. They start by playing any tile face up on the table. It is then the other player’s turn. Turns alternate between the players during which they place one or more tiles on the table. To play a tile it must be place next to at least one other tile, such that the tiles’ corners meet. Both symbols along the shared edge must agree whenever two tiles are next to each other.
“Next to” does not include diagonal neighbours.
On your turn, you start by playing one tile. If this tile is placed next to two or more tiles then you get to play another. This repeats until you play a tile next to only one tile. There is no limit to the number of tiles played in a single turn.
If it is impossible to play a tile, your turn ends. If you can play, you must do so. If neither player can go, then the game is a draw.

Risks and challenges
One of our biggest challenges was trying to organise postage fulfilment that was affordable for everyone worldwide. We've designed the entire game so that it's under the weight and size requirement, to be then classified as a letter and saving backers $6+ per game in postage costs.
When making the prototypes we had some slight imperfections in printing, however we have contacted the printing company and reviewed our files to make sure the final version is perfect.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
