Best version of Blokus to date. Play amazingly with 3 players. Better than the original version.

Plays very similarly to the original Blokus except its based on triangles. After a couple plays, it appears that its easier to get more pieces out and much more difficult to block people than in the original. Easy to learn, easy to teach, easy to play...

An interesting variation is to work cooperatively in an attempt to play all the pieces on the board. I know this is mentioned as a solitaire version, but it also is an interesting exercise with a group of 2-4.

Harder to visualize than Blokus, but I think that's a matter of getting used to looking at bits made of triangles. I've played this a few times with 4 players, and it feels a lot like original Blokus. I'm still not sure whether I like this or the square grid better.

I docked a point on BT for changing the subtle balance in strategy in Blokus. In Blokus, there's a balance between blocking your opponents while trying to achieve a breakthrough. But in BT, blocking your opponent is more important, which turns the game into trench warfare, as opposed to Blokus' 'blitzkrieg' style. But BT has one major advantage over Blokus - it can be played with a variable number of players. Blokus is stuck at 4.

Solid improvement on the original Blokus, having a working 3-player variant is also nice. If you liked the original at all this is a must have. Absolutely must play with the advanced "corners only" variant.

As with Blokus, Blokus Trigon feels like it could have endless replayability. However, because it uses triangles instead of squres, it felt like it was a lot easier to use your pieces. Still, it's a great game.

Better than the original. Harder, in ways. Triangles seem to require more thought than squares. Plays perfectly with three, a definite plus.

25 plays - When I first saw Blokus being played I dismissed it as a 'family' game or kids game. Although that is true, it turned out to be more than that, it makes a great gateway game or filler game. This is quite close to the original and I will echo what others have said, a little more options for placement and a little harder to block. A great weeknight game, if I had to choose only one blokus I'm still not sure which...

UPDATE: I chose this game as the one Blokus game to buy. The scalability aspect coupled with that it does "feel" deeper, really the optimal moves are not as obvious so you do need to think a little more which is good. I have found that blocking is possible but much trickier which means it is quite challenging and that is also very good too. I do miss the easy chances to block a little as I think that is my favourite part of the game (WOOHOO Screwage) but in the end I think Original Blokus is just a bit too easy so this is the winner for me.

UPDATE:7.5 => 8 This is a great little game and it gets my highest rating for a filler, much better than the original IMHO and scales 2-4 perfectly. It has also started to feel a little like a "friendly" wargame where you try to section off a territory for yourself while constantly defending it and then invading others at the same time, gives that feeling of wanting to do 3 things when you can only do one, especially if 2 people try to invade on your space at the same time. Blocking is very possible but quite challenging making for some good screwage and fun . I was origanally worried with this purchase as I prefer meatier games but this is a very enjoyable version that I'm almost always willing to play, its hard to turn down a fun game that only lasts 15 - 25 minutes.

I consider this to be one of the best and quickest gateway fillers out there as you could convince anyone to play, teach them in 1 minute flat and play in 20, perfect for families with kids and still fun for gamers to play and introduce others to the hobby with. My only knock is they could of easily made this for 6 players by adding 2 more rings and some more pieces. As is this is a great mix of a little strategy, good tactics including some 'friendly' screwage, fun and built-in replay.

Tidbit - 2 ways to play with 2 players, 2 colors each or take the 2 outer rings out of the game and it works perfectly like Travel Blokus with 1 color each (you need to start at opposite ends though).

UPDATE:With only 2 players, one colour each and taking out 2 rings, ties are possible by both running out of pieces. Easiest fix, add 1 or 2 of the other colour pieces.

UPDATE: Finally lost steam after 20/25 plays or so, can't fault it for that as that is a pretty good number however Rumis or Pueblo takes this idea to the next level if you want a little more. Edit - Rumis is not a keeper for me, keeping this instead

An improved Blokus, making blocking trickier and protecting avenues tougher. Works quite well with three.

Surprisingly different from the original -- it feels more tactical, and perhaps not quite as good, but it scales very well to three

Instead of squares, let's go with triangles. Blokus with triangles adds more flavor and variety to an already good game.

A bit more open and thus less frustrating than Blokus. I suppose that means it's a bit less challenging, but it's still great fun! If you own one of these, I'm not sure if I can recommend picking up the other, but I do recommend both!

Another hit in the Blokus family. Since there are more possibilities to place tiles, this game plays different from the standard version of Blokus.
The advanced variant however is a lot tougher but still a lot of fun.

I love the original but I think I like this one a little better, mostly because the three-player rules work great. I would recommend the original for families, as the squares are easier to visualize and play with, but I recommend this one for gamers, as the triangles make for more interesting decisions/posibilities.

I'm not a big fan of abstracts, but this one is pretty good on multiple accounts: it's short, it's easy to teach, and it's approachable by non-gamers. Just tell them they're solving a competitive jigsaw puzzle ...

It's just like Blokus, but with triangles! That's harder to pull off than you'd think, but is true of this wonderful sequel.
