About the Game

  • Number of players : 2

Kharto is inspired by Quarto, a board game for two players invented by a Swiss mathematician Blaise Müller edited in 1991 by Gigamic.

The game is played on a 4×4 board with 16 unique pieces. 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 small, all circular, etc.).
