Product Description

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 polyominos - 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 panel. A roll of the die determines which polyominos you must use to perfectly fill in the empty spaces on the puzzle panel. 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 color is worth a different amount of points. After nine rounds, the player with the most valuable gem collection wins.

Download the free companion app, which helps you learn how to play the game, and includes a game timer, a solo game timer, and solution keys.

Features

  • Sprint to solve the puzzle!
  • A game that tests one's spatial reasoning and quick thinking skills.
  • Play by yourself or with up to 4 players!
  • Play time: approximately 25 minutes.

      Comments about Thames & Kosmos Ubongo Puzzle Game:

      We had originally intended to break up into age groups, but quickly realized the youngins were kicking our booties. So, we just broke up into teams of four. Each winner of their 9 rounds moved on to the championship round. I would like to announce that I was the victor, but alas, my seven year old daughter stomped all of us. It was a wildly successful party and an incredibly fun night. UBONGO has found its' place in our game night rotation.

      Ubongo puzzle game is fun for everyone

      By MichCinci

      from Cincinnati OH

      Comments about Thames & Kosmos Ubongo Puzzle Game:

      Ubongo is a bright, colorful, fun, puzzle game that uses spatial orientation to fit pieces together as quick as you can. This is kind of like a board game of tetris. My friends can't wait to come back for another game night. My kids like it, too. There is also an app version for your smart phone. Now my 4 year old son likes to run through the house yelling, "UBONGO!".

          We had guests over and had tons of folks playing this game, ranging in age from 8 to 50+. We all had a blast! It is challenging and can be competitive. There are a couple of ways to play and keep score, so it's pretty flexible. You can score in a way that introduces luck, which makes it a little more fair if an adult is playing a younger child. I really love that it is intellectually stimulating but doesn't feel like "learning".
          We played several games, and two of my kids begged me for the next two days to play the "shapes" game, until we did! I also highly recommend the app. It's almost as much fun as the board game. It's perfect for times when you're sitting around in between appointments, etc. I decided to let my kids have it on their devices too so they can play it instead of watching videos all the time.
          My family plays a lot of games. A LOT! We have family game night at least twice a week, and this is definitely a new favorite. You won't be disappointed!
