Getting Started I: Basic Rules

Quille is played in an 8x8 room containing mostly Red and Green furniture, some obstacles, and a set of bowling pins (Quilles). It looks something like this:

Moving through the room requires you to climb over and interact with pieces of furniture, starting at the entrance and making your way to the Quilles.

However, there are three important rules to follow when moving from item to item.

1. ALTERNATE between RED and GREEN items

If you start on a RED item, you cannot move to another RED item. Likewise, you cannot go from one GREEN item to another. 

This applies not only to items you can sit or lie down on, but also to coloured LIGHTS that you can turn on or off.

Switching a coloured light ON or OFF counts as using an item of that colour. 

e.g After switching on a GREEN lamp, you need to find a RED item next:

There are also “colourless” items (known as WOOD items) that you can use whenever you like.

Sitting on a WOOD item has no effect on the alternating Red/Green rule. 

For example, if you start on a RED item, and then move to a WOOD item, you must still find a GREEN item next (or another WOOD item):

2. When moving over furniture, you must enter a DIFFERENT SPACE

Each piece of furniture lets you move over it in different ways. Beds, for example, force you to roll straight across, while Wooden Stools allow you to jump off in four different directions.

Once you leave a space to get onto an item, you cannot re-enter that space from the item you have just moved onto:

3. You must hit the Quilles from the FRONT PIN, and it must be on your LAST MOVE.

The game ends when you hit the Quilles - but it’s only a valid win if you hit the very front pin of the group of ten. You cannot hit it from the back or sides.

This must also be the last move you make!
