Quarto – Board Game in Unity

Early gameplay, made with Unity (JavaScript), in 2013.

Game Rules:

Quarto is a board game for two players invented by Swiss mathematician Blaise Müller in 1991.

It is played on a 4×4 board. There are 16 unique pieces, each of which is either:

  • tall or short;
  • red or blue (or a different pair of colors, e.g. light- or dark-stained wood);
  • square or circular; and
  • hollow-top or solid-top.

Players take turns choosing a piece which the other player must then place on the board. A player wins by placing a piece on the board which forms a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row of four pieces, all of which have a common attribute (all short, all circular, etc.). A variant rule included in many editions gives a second way to win by placing four matching pieces in a 2x2 square.

Quarto is distinctive in that there is only one set of common pieces, rather than a set for one player and a different set for the other. It is therefore an impartial game.

Project Description:

In 2013 I discovered this beautiful game and decided to make PC and Mobile version. Game is very simple and attractive. I don't finished this project, because I wrote whole game in JavaScript. Now I work in C#. I plan to rewrite this code in C# and finish visual parts too.
