Fourto is a hack of the game Quarto. Learn how to make your own pieces for either $2 with dollar store pieces, the cost of copies of the 2D pieces, or use the template to create your own.
Quarto is an outstanding game of deductive reasoning. It includes a 4 x 4 game board and 16 pieces. Each piece has four attributes: color, height, shape and consistency. So each piece is black or white, tall or short, square or round, and hollow or solid. The object is to place the fourth piece in a row where all four pieces have at least one attribute in common.
