Green Board Games Blokus
Advantages: Strategy, easy to learn, doesn't get boring, well made, suitable for adults and children from 8 yrs
Disadvantages: You can't play with more than 4
Blokus is a strategy game which works best with 4 players, though you can play it with two or three. You take it in turns to place pieces on the board, each person starting from their own corner and with their own colour. Every new piece has to touch a piece of the same colour, but can only touch pieces of the same colour at the corners. The game goes on until no one can put any more pieces down and the person with the least squares left to put down wins!
I always like a game that's highly tactical with only a little based on luck. You have to try to block other players and try to make sure there's space for you to play all your pieces. The game requires a lot of concentration to win it. Having said that, it's incredibly simple to play and you won't need to spend ages looking through the instructions before you get it.
According to the box Blokus is suitable for ages 8 and up and I'd agree with that having played it with an 8 year old, though they may not be as good at the strategy as an adult they will still love it. It's excellent for children and adults alike. It's not a game I can imagine getting bored of playing either - definitely not one of those ones that sits in the cupboard gathering dust for years on end!
You can currently buy Blokus for £14.29 on Amazon and I would definitely recommend it for that price. The board and pieces are made of plastic and seem incredibly sturdy so it's going to last a long time. There are compartments in the box to separate the different coloured pieces.
The game can take from about 15 minutes to play depending on how fast your players are at making decisions, so it's pretty quick, though as soon as you've finished a game you'll want to play another!
Summary: A game for the whole family that's definitely worth investing in!
