4.0 out of 5 stars Quality game on the go, January 26, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Blokus To Go Game (Toy)
Blokus To Go is a smaller, more portable version of the full four player Blokus game and the two player Blokus Duo. The mechanics remain unchanged - each player attempts to place all of their pieces on the board, provided no like-colored pieces touch edges, corners only. Unlike the less portable versions of the game, To Go has holes in all of the pieces to allow them to snap into place - both on the board and the storage trays. You'll want to be careful not to press the pieces down too tightly or they'll be difficult to get back up. That said, even with light pressure the pieces remain secure.

The game itself is great for kids, teens, and adults as there are varying levels of strategy that all age groups can find and enjoy. As a teaching aid for kids, it serves as a good 'intro game' that involves spacial reasoning, without heavy mechanics that could otherwise confuse children.

All in all, it's a good product.

This review is from: Blokus To Go Game (Toy)
I love the original game of Blokus and we play it often at home. I bought this version to bring on backpacking trips. If I were just rating the game itself, I would give it 5 stars. But this particular travel design is terrible. It's difficult to remove the stored pieces from their pegs, and packing up takes forever because you need to put each tile back in it's proper place on the storage cover. It's like completing a puzzle just to clean the darn thing up. I would much prefer the tiles are somehow loose in a separate compartment than fixed in this tough-to-maneuver peg system. After using it just a few times, we put this one away. Will likely give away before long because no one uses it. Better to just buy the scaled-down (2-player) version of Blokus and make a little pouch for it. It's lightweight and easier to use.

If this review was helpful, click the "thumbs up"! I'm trying to get better about "giving back" to this ordering & deciding process :O)
