Broken Meeple APProved - Patchwork (STEAM)

In Patchwork, two players compete to build the most aesthetic (and high-scoring) patchwork quilt on a personal 9x9 game board. It's one of the most popular two player games out there and one of the first to kick-start the whole "polyomino" style games we now see a few off lately. 

So how does it fare with its STEAM release? And why do I suck so badly at this game?
