It's beautiful, it's challenging, it's down right hard at times. What more could one ask for in an abstract strategy game?

Deceptively simple, addicting, and fun. It's more strategic than you would think. Do you extend in to a new area? Do you block off an opponent? Or can you do both with the same piece? Great game!

A great AbsStrat - especially for 4 players - this is still my favorite 4-player strategy game.

One of my favourite games! Not much a fan of abstract games (although I play them more often lately) I was attracted to Blokus immediately because of the nice pieces. The game is different every time and requires another strategy every time. Demonstrated this game for Hodin at Spellenspektakel and it was well received there as well!

Near perfect game so simple it makes you wonder why this was never done before. Plays well with young and old alike and puzzle-like appearance is appealing. It's interesting enough to draw none gamers into a game or two (because they didn't quite get it right the first time around so they want to give it another go...)

One of my all-time favorite, but only with 4 player. Very political when all 4 players are playing against each other ; viscious when playing in teams.

The game is beautiful, thought-provoking, and rewards varying styles of play. 2- and 4-player are great; 3-player is somewhat awkward. Simply terrific overall.

The more I play it, the more I like it. This is a true 10 for me -- I think I could be asleep in bed when the Blokus pieces got dumped onto the table and I'd jump up to come play. It's a deceptively simple no-luck abstract, easy to teach, accessible to all. Young kids are often very competitive!

This game is beautiful! Try the two-person variant or play in two teams. Every shape (of a certain color) exists only once. It would be possible to write a book about each piece describing its unique character. Blokus is also a game of balance and it takes much time to gain mastership.

A simple abstract tile laying game. Sanctioned by the bods at Mensa and you can see why. This game is so simple kids can play and yet elegant and intricate in its own way too. I have a feeling this will shoot to the top of my hot 10.
After a few more games I re-rated this as my first 10 ever. Love it.

Really enjoyable and easy to teach. I've played it with kids from about 6 up with good success. It's a good tetris-like abstract. Of the three oft-compared games Blokus, Blokus Trigon, and Gemblo, this one is the easiest to teach and play.

This was an instant love affair for me. Oh, how I love this game.

And blast my family for not loving it the way I do!

I harrassed friends to join the blokus server so we could play online. It's not the same.

Oh, and if the age question comes up, Max wins whenever two ultra-competitive adults are playing, too -- funny how we tend to let his dominance go unnoticed until it's too late. But, as I said, I can't get anyone to play very often.

I think I might actually be willing to play a game of Monopoly with Max if he agreed to play 3 games of Blokus in return. Okay, maybe even just two games.

Given my interest in abstract strategy games, I am amazed that this has avoided my gaze for so long. The wrong has been righted now, I have played many games, and Blokus receives a clear 10. A brilliant game. I look forward to trying the triangular version.

This is a game that plays equally well with kids or adults. Kids can handily beat adults at this if they are good with spatiality. Also, this game is widely available, carried at places such as Target.

Wow, instant classic. Simple enough to teach in a minute, but incredibly complex. It's just strategy and squares.

Nearly all plays of this has been two player, as I don't think of suggesting abstract strategy games beyond two players.

This is the "I want to do this, this, and that with my turn, but I can do only one thing" game down to its lowest common denominator (I mean that in a good way)

Oh and after playing this and travel blokus over 60 times, I FINALLY got all my pieces down, even with the one piece last! Nice!

Superb abstract strategy game. Wonderfully simple and pretty to look at. Doesn't play as well with 2, and 3 is a bummer, but 4 is perfect.

This one or the travel version (for two) they both play great! There are some stategy games I love (Backgammon) and some I hate (chess), this is one that I love. It's about seeing the patterns. I never get tired of this, it was worth every penny. I will be sure to give it as a gift.

The game that got me interested in abstract strategy games. Just as enjoyable for my sons (9 and 10) as it is for me. Like Othello, it's quick to learn the rules but takes a long time to master. The strategy is much more complex than it would initially seem. Everyone to whom I've introduced the game loves it. It's a favorite among my friends, gamer and non-gamer alike.
