Product Description

Product Description

Blokus is the strategy game for the whole family. Players take turns placing pieces on their board, each starting from their corner. Each new piece must touch at least one other piece of the same color, but only at the corners. The goal is to get rid of all your pieces. The game ends when all players are blocked from laying down any more of their pieces--the player with least number of squares wins. Blokus is a game for up to 4 players.

Box Contains

Blokus is a board game that is superficially related to Tetris. You have a square board and the idea is that you place coloured shapes onto the board, your pieces can only touch on their corners, and as the 4 players each place their pieces on the board you start having to think about how you can get your pieces to fit in the gaps left by their pieces. Each game takes about 20 minutes to play and my kids (10 and 7) enjoy playing it with their mum and dad.

On the surface it's a simple place the pieces game, but given that there are 3 other people playing it can become quite tactical. I've played it with most of the people I know and it kept several people (ages 10 to 80) occupied on a new years day. You can even play some single player game variations on the game.

The biggest problem is that you need 4 people to play a game, but it does make an excellent family game.

Just a very late addition to my review - you can indeed play with 2 or 3 players quite happily. Playing with three generates a very strange set of strategy as each of the three players takes turns playing the remaining colour on its go (it works really well), but I do find the two player version, where each player plays two colours, the least satisfying. After several months it still gets a regular dust off as it's just good fun.

Our Family love this game, so much so we've bought some of the other variants of it. With Adults it's high strategy, but even my 4 year old can play.

The idea is to place all 21 of your pieces on the board, a little easier said than done as you get blocked along the way as pieces can only touch corner to corner.

We have had this game for a few years and it's a definite favourite. It takes about 20 minutes to play (could be a lot longer if you have serious highly competitive chess style players, who think about every move for an hour!! Fortunately none of those in our house)

Although best suited to 4 players, it has az two player version, where you each play with two colours.

I was concerned that with no theme that my girlfriend's family would not like this game but I was wrong. It is a strong favourite for all ages and both girls and boys.

What I like about this game is that it takes just 2 minutes to explain the rules but takes quite a lot of thought to play and master it. All the boys play it right down to 5 years old although the young ones need a little help. In the middle of the game it can take quite a lot of thought to make the best moves.

I think it is best played with 4 people. You can play 3 player and take turns to play the dummy hand or play with 2 and control 2 colours. In the box you get a large plastic board and 4 sets of 21 coloured shapes. All the pieces are sturdy and well made plastic. The shapes slot into the grooves of the board and are relatively stable but not completely knock proof. It is important not to loose any bits because that ruins the game so I suggest that you keep the bits in baggies.

Games are about 30 minutes long.

Very Pleased that I got this game and I recommend it for all ages if you like a game that will make you think strategically.

We first encountered this game on our son-in-law's tablet, but it is so much easier to play on a proper board on the table.
The game was despatched promptly and was well-wrapped so that it arrived in perfect condition.
Thoroughly recommended for those who prefer games of skill to those of chance. Each move is up to you, not the throw of a dice or the turn of a card,

Tried it once at a friends' place. It didn't look like it would be very much fun. But once you start playing it get's quite competitive and lots of fun! Recommend it to all who like to sit around the table and do something fun while chatting.

We loved it from the first moment. It can be played at a very simple level but strategy comes into for those who wish to think a bit more. I highly recommend it.

Its true. We cant get enough of Blokus - in fact since playing and buying this original version we have since bought Blokus Trigon, Blokus 3D and the travel edition. We love games.

This is a great game and easy to learn, explain and play straight away. One rule - your pieces must touch corner to corner. Winner to get the most tiles down. Sounds easy ? Its not.

The game is of good quality - the board is plastic and sturdy with grooves for the pieces to fit into. The pieces themselves are also nice - however there are a few small ones so careful not to lose them. Its quick to set-up and takes about 20mins to play a game. We tend to play best of 3.

Ideally it is best for 3 - 4 players however can be played with 2 players playing 2 colors each. If you are likely to just be playing in pairs the travel version - Blokus Duo - may be more suited. It is the same game just on a smaller scale.

We have played this game with most of our family and friends, of varying age groups. Many have since bought their own copy because they loved it so much.

Highly recommended.

A really fantastic game, easy to learn the basic rules, which makes 1st playing easy but its a lot more tricky than you think. My 12 year old is the best out of all of us, my 7 year old enjoys the games as much as the rest of us. I would really recommend it to everyone.
