Blokus is an exciting thinking game for the whole family. Its simple rules offer an unlimited number of possibilities that will excite both beginners and champions.
Blokus is best played with four players, but it can be played solo, or with 2 or 3 players.
The purpose of the game is to place the maximum number of pieces on the board. However, that isn’t so easy, because pieces of the same colour can only touch each other at the corners, never along their sides.
As each new piece is placed on the board, the rest of the game changes. By using tactics to put down your pieces, you can extend your territory and block your opponents – this ensures the game remains lively from beginning to end.
CG Says: This is a fantastic family game with essentially only one rule. Place your piece touching the corner of another of your pieces without ever overlapping your pieces.
Not only do you have to place pieces to maximise your future opportunities but you are attempting to block your opponents potential plays.
