Bought this for friends on the recommendation of the great Spirit games staff (always good recommendations) and they absolutely loved it. As the other reviews state, it is a quick and simple game to learn but very addictive. The adults and numerous kids who have played it with us really enjoyed it. Will now be returning to Spirit games to get our own copy.

What a great game, so simple and yet challenging and surprisingly tactical.

Very simple rules make it a play, you take it in turns to place one of your \"tetris\" like pieces onto the gridded board, you have to connect each piece to a previously placed piece via a diagonal (corner to corner) rather than edge to edge.

The winner is the player with the fewest number of squares on his left over pieces. There is a bonus for getting all your pieces out and an extra bonus for using your very smallest piece as your last placement. The board and pieces are attractive and the colours distinct. I love the clear plastic playing pieces that have a glassy appearance. My only criticism is that the box is too big for a parts held within and they tend to slosh about within, but there are multiple versions of the game now and it may just be my version.

Blokus has been around for a year or two now and is an excellent abstract game for 2, 3 or 4 players (although best with two or four). Each player has a set of pieces, sort of like 'tetris shapes' and the idea is that you play these pieces onto the board until you cannot make another play.

When placing a piece there are just 2 rules to remember; The new piece must connect to any of your previous pieces via a diagonal connection. The new piece must not have any edges that connect to any of your other pieces along an edge.. and thats it. These simple rules make Blokus a great family game and one that you'll want to play again and again.

Blokus Duo is exactly the same game, but on a smaller board, ideal for two.
