Blokus3D is just that sort of game. My 5 year old really enjoys playing, and he is getting close to beating me! We only play the "tower" configuration right now, and we have a great time. In addition to great game play, a lot of though was put into the game itself. Each of the 4 colors fits in its own opening in the plastic tray, and the game board fits on top. The game board has a nice rotating action to allow each turning of the emerging tower without knocking over all of the pieces.
My only complaint is that the pieces can be tough for little fingers to avoid accidentally knocking over. Perhaps if they were a bit heavier, or if their surfaces were slightly different, the tower would hold better. Otherwise, I am happy with the game and heartily recommend it.
After receiving this game at Christmas, we used it several times at parties.
It doesn't take too long to learn, and is a great game for adults and children to play together. You choose a template for each round, and the template determines the size and shape of the tower that can be built. The goal is to have the most blocks of your color on the uppermost levels.
It is easiest to play with the simpler templates first, and then move on to the more complex ones once your players have gotten the hang of it. As they play more games, they start to learn strategies to block their opponents and position themselves to win.
We played with a group of adults, and children down to age 5. While the 5 year old played a pretty straightforward game, I noticed that our 9 and 10 year olds were able to understand and use more subtle strategies.
One drawback, it takes a slightly steady hand. A bump in the wrong place can cause the tower to come tumbling down, and end the game prematurely. We kept thinking that some sort of magnetic design might work better.
All in all - a fun game!
From the back of the box:
1. Each player chooses a set of colored blocks. Players select a template (Tower, Corner, Steps, or Pyramid) and place it on the game board. Player 1 places a block on the board, staying within the template's boundaries.
2. Rival players must place their first bocks so that they touch at least one of their opponent's blocks and the game board.
3. Players continue placing blocks, one at a time, on the game board. As each block is placed, it must touch at least one face of the same color, but not extend beyond the structure's height limitations.
4. The game is over when all blocks have been placed or players have no more moves. The player with the most squares visible from above is the winner.
If we could only own a handful of games, this would definitely be one of them!
Overall, this game isn't as fun as the original, and it's not as easy to understand the rules. If two children are playing, often an adult is needed to help the children understand where the height limits are (although I myself have gotten it wrong).
The main complaint with the game is that there is nothing to keep the pieces in place once they are set: they do not attach to each other in any way, but instead merely sit on each other and a bit of effort is often required to keep the pieces in place and prevent them from falling as the sides of the blocks are smooth.
Unlike original Blokus, it can be played with 2 or 3 players without having to have players play extra colors.
Note about Amazon "warnings;" this toy DOES NOT contain a marble and DOES NOT contain a ball.
