References Blokus is a strategy game for players where you try to lay down as many of your tiles on the board as you can. When you play a tile, you must place it so it touches a corner on at least one of your other pieces. While Blokus is an easy game to learn and play, it can take a little bit of time to master!

These are the 21 Blokus game pieces. As we mentioned, some of those pieces might look strangely familiar to Tetris fans. Sound easy? Consider that there are only a certain number of legal placements. The game is always played in order of blue, yellow, red and green turns, no matter what, and play proceeds clockwise. Start by placing a piece in the corner of your choice -- note that one square unit of your inaugural game piece must actually cover the corner square of the board.
Your fellow players will then do the same with their respective corners. On each subsequent turn, each player will strategically place his or her Blokus pieces on the board.
Two rules govern placement of pieces: You must position your piece so that it touches another piece of your same color. When all the players have been foiled, the game is over. Count up all the squares on the board for a point each and then subtract your unused squares from that total.
If you were some kind of amazing Blokus genius and placed all 21 squares, good for you: You get 15 extra points! If you were even more amazing and managed to use the single square on your very last turn?
Add another five points to that You, my friend, are a Blokus champ.

Blokus Junior[ edit ] Blokus Junior is targeted at younger children. There are 12 unique pieces. Each player gets two of each kind, 24 in total. The game also comes with a set of sheets with single-player puzzles, which show positions in which the player needs to connect two pieces following standard Blokus rules. There is also a major rule change; instead of being required to place pieces so they touch corner-to-corner, a piece must be placed such that it touches a face of another piece of the same color. Also, a player placing a piece cannot do so if it would create any empty space underneath any part of the piece.
