Blokus is a family game involving four players and a board with 20 x 20 squares. Like chess or checkers, it''s a game for which at any time you can see your opponent''s pieces.
No ads at all! Once installed, you can play offline.
Each player starts with 21 pieces : 1 monomino, 1 domono, 2 triominos, 5 tetraminos and 12 pentaminos. It may recall you the Tetris polyominos...
"For first round, I must place a piece so that it touches one of the corners of the board"
"Next, a piece must be placed so that it touches a corner of one of my own pieces.
It may touch several corners, but never any side/edge of my pieces!" Look at screenshots or at the video.
The game has a nice and natural User Interface : just Drag & Drop the piece with the finger. Rotate a piece likewise.
You can flip a piece to its mirror position with a long-press gesture.
"If a cannot place any more piece I pass my turn."
You can see opponent''s remaining pieces, by pressing corresponding tab.
The end of the game is reached when every player passes.
"My score is : addition of the squares of the pieces I placed".
