Blokus Trigon is an abstract strategy game from the makers of Blokus. The board pieces have changed from square to triangular. Game play is similar to Blokus, as players try to get rid of all their pieces. The only caveat to placing a piece is that it may not lie adjacent to your other pieces, but instead must be placed touching at least one of your pieces already on the board at a corner.
There is a solitaire version where one player tries to get rid of all the pieces in a single sitting.
Hexagonal playing board with 486 triangles on the board
4 sets of 22 pieces in red, blue, green and yellow
- 1 piece made up of one triangle.
- 1 piece made up of two triangles.
- 1 piece made up of three triangles.
- 3 pieces made up of four triangles.
- 4 pieces made up of five triangles.
- 12 pieces made up of six triangles.
Layout your hexagonal silver board and give each player a set of 22 squares.
Each player begins at one of the marked spaces on the board. The order of play is blue, yellow, red, green colors.
As the play progresses, each new piece is placed on the board. The new piece placed must touch another piece of the same colour and it can only touch at the corners. The constraint is never touch along the sides.
When a player is blocked and cannot place any more pieces on the board, they must drop out of the game. The other players continue until they are blocked or no one is able to place any more pieces on the board.
When all the players are blocked, each player must count the number of triangles that they were unable to place on the trigon board and calculates their score as follows:
- Any triangle that is not placed on the board counts towards a negative point.
- 15 points are awarded as a bonus, if the player has all 22 pieces placed on the board.
- This bonus increases to a 20 points if the 22 pieces were placed on the board with the single triangle being placed last.
The winner is the person with the maximum points!
