Playing boardgames is a popular pasttime in my household (we have more than 250 games in our collection at this point). Blokus is our latest addition, and it will definitely be getting more gameplay going forward.

Major pros:
1) EASY TO LEARN. There is a single rule to follow in this game, which is that every piece you place must touch your other pieces only at the corners. That's it. Our first play consisted of myself, my 7 year old and 5 year old sons, and my 3 year old daughter, and even she was able to participate (fun for a wide age group). Everyone quickly grasped how to play, but I could see for my oldest son in particular that he rapidly started to recognize that there is quite a bit of strategy in terms of which piece you choose to place, and whether you're placing it to help yourself or block someone else.

2) QUICK TO PLAY - both of our games finished in less than 30 minutes (always good when you're playing with kids), although this could go longer if you play with someone who agonizes over every decision they have to make.

Cons:
The only downside for this game really is that it's an abstract game. You aren't racing cars or fighting dragons, you're placing blocks (think Tetris).

If you need a theme in your game to inspire you, you won't find it here, but if you're just looking for a fun game that's simple to learn and won't take hours to set up, play, and clean up, then this will definitely fit the bill.

I really had high expectations for Blokus especially since it looks alot like Tetris, but the comparisons pretty much stop there. Two players take turns placing pieces on the gameboard and as long as 1 of their pieces touch their other piece then they are good. The point of the game is to get all your pieces on the board or have less pieces then your opponent has then you will win. This was fun at first, but after awhile it got very boring just dropping pieces. I guess its alot more fun playing games like this on a gamesystem then in person.

Very Challenging!

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 Blokus Game:

      Blokus is a different type of strategy game, because the game pieces have to connect to each other while blocking your opponents' pieces so they run out of space. The fact that your pieces can only connect at the corners makes it even more challenging. My oldest son is 10 and loves playing this game. It really makes you think carefully where you place your pieces in order to get the highest score.

          This game is a lot of fun! It is a smaller version of the original. But still just as fun! Game play is about 30 minutes.

            This is a great game for the whole family. My children play this with me and my husband often. My son is 6 and he needs a little help, but my 8 year old daughter and 19 tear old son play on their own. There is a ton of strategy involved without a lot of complex rules. Also, the games can move pretty fast sometimes, so it makes a great activity that fits in between other activities. Blokus is a super fun family game that makes you rethink your strategy with each play!

                Gave this game to my oldest who just turned 11 years old. She loves games. Especially live action vs. smart phone/PC gaming. We were a bit confused on the rules to this. (I admit that I thought it was a similar version of TETRIS. I was clearly wrong. So I youtubed it, such an easier way of learning how to play. Trying to read directions while small people are anxious to play is nearly impossible. We really like this game, it's like a larger version of tic-tac-toe & checkers, meaning that you are trying to strategically block the other player. Took close to no time for my 9 and 11 year old kids to quickly catch on. Having a little difficulty with my 6 year old, but that's only because she can't out maneuver the other two. At the moment, it seems like it will be a great addition to family game night. Would recommend, really gets their little minds working.

                    my kids love the bloks game because it is actually not easy to win. First you have to work out a strategy not play the pieces randomly, and my kids are quite serious about this game, i think it is a good game to let them use their little brains.

                      Loved this game from the moment I received it. It is very easy to learn how to play. The average play time is about 30 minutes, so you have a chance to play it a few times at a go. Played it with two players and while we enjoyed it, it played much better when there was four of us. It looks like a to easy a game to play but it becomes more and more strategic as you play. The actual game also looks great, sturdy, well made and very colorful. I played with two of my neighbors and they loved it so much they said they would purchase one for themselves.

                              Before playing Blokus I was worried we (the adults) would not enjoy it. Usually if the adults like a game, the kids rarely enjoy it at the same level. This game provided entertainment for both kids and adults. Unlike some games, Blokus didn't take all afternoon to play. It was the perfect amount of time and appropriately challenging.
