A fast-pasted block building game that requires strategy and luck.
Players skillfully fill in their own playing board so that all the differently shaped tiles fit perfectly.
FITS is an ingenious, competitive puzzling game, played in four rounds in which players try to arrange the differently shaped tiles shown on the building cards onto their boards in the best way possible in order to obtain the most points. Each round is played on a different game board and filled with a variety of challenges, calculated risks and intense hoping for the right card to be revealed. If a tile doesn't fit precisely, players have to slot it in the best they can. The next tile may fit better than the last and make them the winner in the end!
Strategy Skills Needed for Two-Directional Play
A fast-paced family game of shape and luck, FITS encourages players to think in multiple directions and to recreate specific geometric shapes. With this game, players will improve their spatial and strategy skills by building grids with tiles both horizontally and vertically according to building cards. The differently shaped tiles can be placed onto the game board in lots of different ways so no game play will every be the same! Each game requires strategic thinking and calculated risk taking and promotes concentration, cause-and-effect skills as well as social interaction.
Colorful Design and Intriguing Play
FITS is a color-coded building game played with tiles and directed by building cards. Each player uses his/her own game board so while players compete against one another they also challenge themselves to complete the various tasks presented and earn the most points. Each round is played on a different game board, adding a variety of challenges for addictive playing fun!

This game differs from Tetris in that (1) there are no time constraints (I am not a fan of games that reward the speediest participant). The next card is not drawn until everyone has placed their piece on their board. (2) You cannot slide the pieces sideways to fill in holes which makes it more challenging. (3) The pieces vary in the number of blocks that make them up (not all are composed of four squares). Since each player starts with a different piece, no one really has an advantage, but the round will play substantially differently for each player.
Some of the things I especially like about this game are:
1. It can be played equally well with 2 - 4 players.
2. It only takes 30 - 45 minutes.
3. It takes some strategizing and planning ahead but isn't too taxing so you can play to relax.
4. I love the four different boards used in the different rounds of play. Each board has a different set of markings so that the strategy of the game changes with each round. You have to figure out whether you would do better to leave certain squares exposed or covered depending on the positive or negative point value of the square...Read more ›
FITS is the best game I have found for enticing people to play games with my group. The best part is that they already know the rules - it's Tetris! Being able to play a game competitively without listening to long rules explanations helps people to get comfortable and open to trying new games.
FITS isn't the best game out there, and it doesn't provide many strategic opportunities, but as a filler and as a gateway game it works very well. I recommend it to gamers looking to introduce or entice others to play games with them, and also to all fans of Tetris.
The game is made in Germany. The instruction booklet provides instructions in several languages, but German is first. The English instructions are on page 13.
With one exception the game seems durable enough. If your kids are well-behaved and careful then the game should last a long time. If they are wild or careless some things will start to get damaged right away. The tiles themselves are very tough. The ramp cards are made of a thick paper-type material (think cereal box) and like anything made of this material if handled carefully they'll last a long time. If not, they'll crease and tear quickly. My big concern with this game is the durability of the ramps. The ramps are made of a thin plastic (marked "PS 06") that bends very easily (I've posted a picture). It's not going to take much to crack or crush one of these things, so be careful.
The premise is pretty simple, in that you're using the "bricks" to fill your game card. There are four rounds with different game cards for each, while the pieces remain the same each time. This does add a little fun to the game in that you have to use different approaches depending on the round. You can be aggressive and go for a lot of points, or play conservative, and both approaches are influenced by the order of the cards. One of the things I didn't like - and this probably comes from being spoiled by Tetris - is that you can't turn the pieces once you start moving them down your game board. That makes it more challenging, but also takes away some creativity. I will say that the rules and the different boards certainly make it challenging, even after having played several times.
I played this game with both of my daughters, who are eight and five (the game says 8+). The older one was able to grasp the game very easily even if she didn't understand the strategy too well, and the younger one pretty much had the grasp of it as well. The boards and the stands are quite durable, and the bricks are very well-made. Although it's not my favorite, it's another excellent game from this manufacturer.
