Blokus is a game that’s played a lot in the LRC. It’s really simple to learn and extremely addictive.
Each player gets the same number of pieces to play with. There are two circles on the board and each player must play their first moves on one of the circles.
You take turns placing pieces on the board, trying to block your opponent but using up as many of your own pieces as possible. Easy peasy, except … all of your pieces MUST touch each other, but ONLY at the corners, not along the edges.
Each player carries on until they can’t put any more of their pieces down. Then you count up the squares on each piece and the lowest score is the winner!
The LRC has a two-player version of the game, but you can also play online here against a computer in the two or four player version.
