Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Enjoy this strategic game Tetris Link of linking blocks. Win by building a vertical accent of Tetriminos to the top of the tower.

Product Description

Adapted for competitive play, this favorite game goes delightfully low-tech, developing shape and color awareness along with strategic thinking. Players take urns dropping "Tetriminos" into the vertical board, linking colors and blocking opponents to score points. Its as addictive as its digital counterpart.

Full disclosure: I was sent a copy of Tetris LINK by the publisher for review

Tetris LINK is a new board game from Techno Source, and the designer is uncredited. When I got the game, I didn't really have high hopes for it - no designer listed, a publisher I wasn't familiar with, and making use of a franchise name. I really wasn't sure how it would stand up to play with the members of the St Louis Board Game Meetup Group.

Looking through the rules, the play is simple enough. Each player has 5 of each of the 5 Tetris tetrominoes, for a total of 25 pieces. There's a die that has 5 faces each depicting one of the 5 shapes, and one "Tetris LINK" face, that is used as a wild. To play, you roll the die, select the depicted shape, and drop it into the vertical grid, just like tetris. However, once you've selected which column it will drop in, there's no moving or rotating it to tuck it into a gap. Once you have three pieces of your colour linked (orthoganally - diagonally doesn't count), each such piece scores 1 point. So when you get your group of three, you score 3 points. If you add a fourth, you'll score an additional point. If someone blocks you off, you can start a new group, but it doesn't count, until it's at least a group of three. Also, if you drop a piece and there's a single completely open square under it, you score a -1 point. If there are two or more squares under it, you score -2 points, no matter how many open squares you left. If you roll the die and the piece showing is one you've already run out of, your turn is over. Play continues until nobody can play any more pieces. You're not allowed to have a piece sticking out the top of the grid. The person with the highest score wins.

I found Tetris Link to be a fun, simple, easy to learn gateway game. The rules are pretty straight forward, after 5 minutes with them anyone can be ready to play their first game. At first, I thought it was fairly light game for kids, but after a few plays I came to realize that it also some strategic depth that is not apparent upon first glance. A lot of the game comes down to positioning, what orientation of each piece gives me the most options in later turns? How do I place my pieces so they are not easily capped? How do can I create situations that make it easy for me to cap others? These are the strategy questions you have to answer when playing the game. I would highly recommend this game to kids or adults just starting out playing games.

The only thing I ended up missing was the music from the original game.

Tetris Link

Full disclosure: I was sent a copy of Tetris LINK by the publisher for review.

I am just like the previous reviewer. When I received the game for playtesting, I thought it sounded great...but I was afraid that it would be another boring little francise game. I had no idea if the members of BoardgamesNJ would like it (or if I would).

However, I initially played it with my family and it instantly became a big hit. I was amazed at how much fun it was! The die, instead of seeming random, actually made the game more strategic. And after playing it quite a few times, I finally tried it out with my group.

And so far, everyone who has played it has liked it. Several folks loved it enough that they immediately went looking for it...and I am glad to see that it is now available on Amazon. It's become a staple game for me and we usually play it at my group as a fun filler a few times before we get into a very long strategy game. So I am happy to leave a review that recommends this to others.

So...buy this and have some fun. You'll like it!

Blokus is one of my personal favorite board games, so I picked up this game due it's strong similarities. That said, I also love Tetris, and I'm pleased to report that this game also does justice to its namesake video game franchise as well.

Much like Blokus and its variants, the goal of this game is to chain together sets of colored tiles. Where the Tetris brand enters the mix is that the tiles are played in a vertical grid, similar to Connect 4. Once three tiles are connected, points are scored for every tile added to the chain. But if the chain is blocked by another player, one must link three more tiles to continue scoring. Even though the goal of chaining tiles differs from how the video game is played, the traditional rules of Tetris are still in play otherwise. As points are lost for leaving gaps between tiles, it still pays to try and fill in full lines of tiles and avoid stacking tiles too high and unevenly.

The game strikes a great balance of offensive and defensive play, as players can focus on linking tiles and also blocking opportunities for others to link their tiles. In addition the player rolls a die to determine which tile to play, maintaining the semi-luck-based nature of the video game, since you have to work with the tiles the game hands you. One side of the die is a wild card side, however, allowing you to choose what tile you use. Overall, the system is simple, easy to grasp, and works very well. It's a competitive game, but as long as all the players are good sports it's fun for everyone. The rules of the game are somewhat vague, but easy to understand after playing once or twice. And given the simple nature of gameplay, it's easy to customize the rules to one's liking.
