+ what is playability?
The original game, for 2 to 4 players, which has become a classic board game throughout the world. A strategy game for the whole family, the simple rules take less than a minute to learn, yet the game has the depth to challenge both beginners and experts alike. The game consists of a square board with 400 squares, and 84 game pieces in 4 colours. Instruction sheet enclosed. When it is played by four people, the game is very animated and the outcome is never certain. Played by two people (where each player has two colours), the game provides the opportunity for more strategic and careful thinking. 2-4 players. Ages 5+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm obsessed with this game. This is an awesome game. My son got it for Christmas, but I'm the one who's been playing it non-stop ever since. The box says the game is for ages 5+ and kids can certainly learn the rules easily enough, but all my adult friends love it too. I find it similar to Othello/Reversi so if you like those games, you'll love this one. It's very strategic so the more you play it, the better you'll get at it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful looking and fun game In Blokus, players pick a color and corner of the board. They begin by placing a plastic piece of their color in their own corner. Any new piece placed must touch one of your existing pieces but only corner to corner so two edges of the same color may not be next to one another. Play continues and players are trying to fit as many of their pieces as they can. Eventually no one will be able to fit anything on the board, players count the squares on their remaining pieces, the player with the smallest total wins! Blokus is a great game for non-gamers and it just looks great when you first take it out: bright colorful and simple. This is the type of game that you can take out when hanging out casually with family/friends, you can break from the game and easily pick up where you left off without taking away from the experience. The game is simple enough for young kids and it plays in about 20-30 minutes with 4 players. There are variants where you play with only two colors or where two players control two colors of pieces. The pieces are good quality plastic and the board is also strong plastic. Warning for parents this is not a game for infants/toddlers because of the choking/swallowing hazard, the pieces do look yummy though. Blokus is a great casual game for kids and adults, definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple yet lots of fun! The rules of this game are very simple. You can have the game set up, the rules explained, and be ready to play in minutes. ** I do not feel that this game works well for three players, though, so keep that in mind. Four players is best, two can work, three not so much. ** We've played several times now, and it's been just as fun each time. It's a game that works well for different age players -- in our family that's two adults, a teen, and an 11 year old. We were able to play well together without any one of us having a huge advantage due to age. The more we play, the better we get. It is a strategy game and does require you to think before placing your pieces. It's great for exercising your brain and having fun at the same time. It's the perfect family game night game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Family Game This is a great game to play with young children. Our 3 kids are currently aged between 7 and 10 and we're having lots of laughs. Great game to encourage critical thinking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blokus Game of Strategy It was delivered promptly, in perfect condition. It is much better quality than I expected. It has a lot of pieces and they were all in order, well packed with zip lock type bags for storage, in a good box that should last with normal usage. It's not like any other game I've ever seen -- most children's games I see are just another version of old games. I highly recommend Blokus!
