Did you sink hours into play Tetris? It takes quick thinking and some spatial recognition to place those oddly shaped bricks into the right spot to squeeze out the maximum points. And, of course, there was that coveted straight block! Woo yeah, get one of those bad boys and all of your hard work was rewarded.
Well, Ubongo ISN’T Tetris, but it does take the concept of spatial recognition and quick thinking and applies it to a board game for 1 to 4 players.
This game, by Thames & Kosmos, comes with 36 different puzzle boards, along with 48 different tiles of various shapes, sizes, and colors. It comes with a die, an hourglass, plastic gem pieces, a game track, and a rules book. There’s also even a companion app you can download for additional gameplay.
Games are quite simple, but they will test your brain out! Each player gets a puzzle card and a set of blocks. Just set the time and race to arrange the pieces to match your puzzle board. The fast you complete your puzzle board, the more gems you’ll score! After 9 rounds, the player with the most gems wins it all.
