Product Description

Product Description

Can you skillfully fill in your playing board so that all the differently shaped tiles fit perfectly without leaving any spaces? FITS is a fast-paced family game with easy-to-learn instructions for non-stop entertainment! It is designed for 1-4 players ages 8 and up and takes approximately 30 minutes to play.

Skillfully fill in your playing board with the differently shaped tiles.

A fast-pasted block building game that requires strategy and luck.
A competitive puzzling game played in four rounds.

Players skillfully fill in their own playing board so that all the differently shaped tiles fit perfectly.
Fill In The Spaces!
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!

What's In The Box?
64 game tiles (16 of each color: red, green, blue, yellow), 8 game boards (printed on both sides, 2 per color), 4 ramps with 16 triangular anti-skid pads, 4 transparent covers, 4 starting cards, 16 building cards, 1 set of detailed instructions.

Yes, you will think of Tetris when you first play this game, but actually, this game is much better. First, the design of the game is great. The playing pieces, although plastic, are heavy and feel good in the hands, and although the bases are thin plastic, the design is well-thought-out so that the board can change as the game progresses, and the pieces can slide down easily over the different game boards. I did not put five stars for durability because if the base was stepped on, it would squash (it would be better in wood), but the box is sturdy, so as long as you put it away carefully, I envision the game lasting a long time.
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...

I play a lot of boardgames, and they are not the typical Monopoly, Sorry, or other Wal-Mart board games. Many of the games I play are hobby European games (Puerto Rico, Agricola) or theme/war games (Battlestar Galactica, Combat Commander). These games can be pretty intimidating and complicated for people who are new to hobby boardgaming.

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.

As an avid board gamer, who enjoys playing games with both friends and family, I'm always looking for games that please a wide variety of tastes. If you think this has an eerie resemblance to Tetris, you're not mistaken. And it shares Tetris' wide appeal. The basic gist is that, as the pieces are randomly drawn one at a time, you must slide them into place in a way that will give you the most points. Four different boards with different ways of scoring add to the excitement. An added benefit is that the game plays in less than 30 minutes and has great replay value and is even enjoyable solitaire!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a fan of Tetris back in the day, I was very interested in a board game that looked similar. And while it's a fun game, it's not as enjoyable as Tetris itself and gets a little dull when in terms of repeat play.

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.

This is a great Tetris like game that helps kids with early geometry skills and spatial visualization. For many it also reinforces the classic game skills of taking turns and cooperation. We use this at school with the TAG kids K - 2 and they enjoy the different strategies of the 4 different versions of the game.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
OK, so it's obviously Knizia reworking Tetris, but it is worth pointing out that people like my 9-year-old daughter haven't spent almost 30 years playing Tetris, and so this is a relatively new concept. Also, there are some pretty basic differences between Tetris and FITS which mean that if you don't approach the game for what it is, you'll get clobbered with negative points. The finite nature of the game (4 rounds vs a theoretically infinite playing time in Tetris) means that you have to score your points where you can get them, and pay severely for any early mistakes. It may be derivative, but that doesn't mean that the game can't make you feel like a complete moron after having played. The first game I played with my daughter resulted in her winning with a score of ZERO. My -11 point score left me wondering if I was no longer competent to be raising a child without the authorities stepping in. It has gotten better since then, but this is a hugely challenging game. A variety of expansions will help in keeping the game fresh.

The only criticisms of this would be that 1) it is essentially multi-player solitaire (but really, one could say that about very nearly every puzzle game), and 2) some parts of this game are REALLY flimsy. The polyominoes are about the only part of the game which look like they wouldn't become damaged if you look at them the wrong way. This game isn't terribly expensive, but it's expensive enough. I want something that is built to last for a reasonable amount of time, and I really have my doubts about this.

Nonetheless, it is fun, and it is challenging. As they often say, easy to teach, difficult to master. It won't hurt your kids to give this shot. And since studies suggest that playing games and puzzles helps to ward off Alzheimer's, and can't hurt those growed up people either.
