Fast! Captivating! Simple!

Ubongo is a fast-paced, addictive, and easy-to-learn geometric puzzle game. Players race against the timer and against each other to solve a puzzle of interlocking shapes. The faster you solve the puzzle, the more gems you get. The player with the most valuable gem treasure after nine rounds of solving puzzles wins!

Here's how it works: Each player receives a set of 12 tiles. The tiles are polyomios - geometric shapes formed of equal-size squares joined edge to edge in different arrangements. At the start of each round, each player gets a new puzzle board. A roll of the die determines which tiles you must use to perfectly fill in the empty spaces on the puzzle board. Any players who complete the puzzle within the time limit yell out "Ubongo!" and grab a gem at random from the bag. The fastest player also gets a blue gem and the second fastest an amber gem. Each gem colour is worth a different amount of points. After nine rounds, the player with the most valuable gem collection wins.

Contents:

  • 36 Puzzle boards (with 432 different puzzles)
  • 48 Tiles (4 sets of 12 colours)

  • 1 Hourglass
  • 1 Cloth bag
  • 58 Plastic gems (19 Sapphires, 19 Ambers, 10 Rubies, 10 Emeralds)

Reviews Review Game
By Hopuk From Lancs in United Kingdom
Review
Ubongo is a fast and fun puzzle game, where the players are up against the timer as they try to fit either 3 or 4 of the 12 available puzzle tiles they have into a grid of spaces. The puzzle boards are double sided, one side is for playing with 3 pieces and the other side for 4 pieces. Each puzzle board has a combination of 6 sets of the puzzle pieces and which set is used by the throw of a special dice. The first one to fill their board gets to choose two gems first, and so on. At the end, the player who has most gems of one colour wins.

A good fast and fun family game that isn't too difficult to play, although as you are up against time it's not always asy to find a way to get all your pieces in place, but thats the fun of Ubongo!
