Board Game Review: Blokus

by kateG (follow)
For any board loving folk out there, nothing beats whiling away a wet Sunday afternoon with a selection of the board game greats. Even though the timeless board game classics will always win me over, there are also some great new ones that are fun for all the family.

Mr 6 was recently given Blokus for his birthday and we been discovering the fun of this simple, yet strategic game.

In a nutshell, itís Testris with a twist! The game consists four transparent coloured (red, blue, green and yellow) blocks and a Blokus Board.

Unlike the video game where you need to make a line of blocks, the rules of Blokus state that you can only place one of your pieces on the board as long as it is touching at least one corner of a block of the same colour. However, your pieces can touch other colours without restrictions. Stick with me, like any board game it gets easier and addictive the more you play it.



The game is for 2-4 players. The aim is that players take it in turns to place as many of their pieces on the board as possible. If a player is unable to lay a pieces then he next player has a turn until no-one can go.

The game finishes when a player has laid their last piece or no player can lay a tile.

Each payer is then given a minus score for the number of tiles they have remaining (i.e. 1 point per tile).

In an added twist, if a player places all their pieces on the board they earn 15 points.

This award winning board game from Mattel Games will have you hooked in no time.
