I was a bit disappointed to find Matel has made the new line of Blokus boards smaller by about 1/3. The original board was 13" x 13" while this board is 10" x 10". Although it doesn't seam much it's actually a reduction of 69" square inches which is equal to about 1/3 of the total area. It also doesn't include resealable bags for the pieces (like the original did).

Note the board and pieces are still of high quality, just smaller. I personally prefer the larger board and pieces but oh well...

I did not realize this was a miniature version of the game Blokus when I ordered it. I was purchasing as a gift but will have to return and get the full size. I wish this was made clear in the description!

CAUTION!!! Amazon sells TWO VERSIONS and this is the HALF-SIZED VERSION!!!

Blokus is such a fine game you can play it your whole life, and the game's character varies with your opponent's styles. Adding geometric pieces together and blocking others from doing so is the object of the game.
The original size is about 22 by 22 inches and very comfortable for 4 players. The version of the game sold with this image, the picture of the cover is about 11 inches. Really not so much fun at all.

Be warned.

My 6 year old granddaughter was recently asked to take part in a Jr. Problem Solvers Club at school. They are using this game as the basis of the "problem" they are solving. She loved it so much that she asked me to buy her one for home (how many kids want to do what might be considered school work once they get home from school?). Her and I played it as soon as it came. It is fun; and, there are different ways of playing it if you use your imagination. I don't think age is really an issue again because of being able to use your imagination to develop different ways to play. I think it was worth it and my granddaughter certainly enjoys it. If you have youngster (especially if they like to play games), I think they might like this one.

A game to enjoy with the whole family!! My 4 year old plays it but doesn't totally get the strategy part yet. But if my husband and I are playing with her we have a great time blocking each other.

The game itself is great - it's just that the board & pieces keep getting smaller. I have bought three Blokus games (to replace lost or damaged pieces from my original) and each one has been a little smaller - smaller board & smaller pieces! So I can use the pieces interchangeably - maybe I'll look for a used game to fill in my missing parts.

As a board game enthusiast, I was not particular to this game. However, it definitely has value as an abstract strategy game. The whole family can participate and the geometric elements give the game a very unique style. This is not a friendly game, you will likely want to hurt someone you play with...
