The premise is simple enough it requires very little explanation.

Even my 5 year old grand-daughter loves this game, and she is very good at it, beating several adults at it. She is also very good at Q-bitz, and Blockus.

i love it! My partner and i played last night for a best out of 5 title. we played all variations of the game and had a great time. the set up and game play are straight forward and easy to understand. Even our little board game enthusiast (3 years old) wanted to play... so we quickly modified the game into a "puzzle" and he was having a blast.

this will for certain be on our gift giving list of must haves.

This is a nice quick filler game for 2 people.

The premise is simple enough it requires very little explanation.

The pieces are well made and look good. Should stand up well to spills and falls and whatever else may happen to them over time.

I would note that there is very little depth to play here, which is fine. Generally we find ourselves playing this while watching a tv show or movie or something that's equally shallow.

You may not find yourself wanting to play this every week but it is a good game to breakout here and there.

I have purchased 3 of these over the last 6 months! Mom was visiting and we played. I sent one to her. Daughter was visiting and we played. She took mine home and I ordered another for our house. This game is fast and thought provoking. Finally a game for 2 that isn't cards.

Fun game that can be played with diverse abilities - as in, I can play it with my 5 year old grandson and still have fun! I do let him "cheat" but that's ok.

It isn't easy - I'm looking forward to playing with someone I can insist follow the rules!

I love this game. I bought it for my 5 year old son. He and my 3 year daughter both enjoy playing and my husband and I love the game too. This game is similar to tetris, although you only get one of each shape. I think it's great for the kids to visualize how the pieces fit together. It's only for two players, but you can play on teams when more people want to play.

My wife likes this. Let me rephrase that... my non-gamer wife likes City Square Off. Heck, my wife voluntarily taught the game to one of her friends - a casual family gamer - who went out & bought a copy.

For some of you reading this, that's really all you need to know. This very straightforward Tetris-like two-player game is winningly produced (nice molds for the starting cities, Gamewright production people!) and the game play is simple enough that my six-year-old can play... though not competitively. And my very significant other likes it!

Ted Cheatham (note: Ted is a long-time personal friend) has created a game that's squarely (unintended pun - once again, my apologies for going OFF on a tangent.... dang, I did it again!) in the mode of FITS without being an identical gaming experience.

Here, players begin with non-identical city center pieces, an identical set of city "blocks" and their own gridded city board. (If you own a copy of Blokus, it's the same set set of tiles.) One of the players turns up a card which indicates which city block must be placed on the board... and that block has to go adjacent to the city center or an already placed block. The first player to be forced to play outside the grid loses... unless both players do so on the same turn - then the player with the largest single open area wins.

There are four variants listed in the rules - I especially like the "sprawl" version that lets player have city blocks hang off the edge - and there are four different city center pieces to increase the variety in the base game.

Like Take It Easy or Cities or FITS, there's really no limit on the number of players for City Square Off IF you have enough game sets... but the game is a lot of fun just with two players.

My grandkids (ages 8 and 4), loved this game. They spend hours playing, building cities, I got involved too, and it was fun!
