What is Blokus about?
Blokus is a 2-4 player game which requires players to strategically fit as many of their tetris-like tiles on a shared board as they can. This board however, does not have enough space for everyone and players are not allowed to place a piece that lies adjacent to their other pieces and instead must be placed touching at least one corner of the pieces already placed on the board.
Blokus Gameplay commences with each player choosing a color and places that set of 21 pieces in front of their side of the board. The order of play is as follows: blue, yellow, red, green. The first piece played by each player must cover a corner square.
The game ends when all players are blocked from laying down any more of their pieces. The player with the most points wins the game, accumulated by the number of unit squares placed on the board.
