Who doesn’t enjoy playing a creative, challenging, competitive board game from time to time? Blokus Trigon is exactly that.
What is Blokus Trigon? Well, to put it simply, Blokus Trigon has taken the old Blokus board game and added a super-challenging twist! This newest member of the Blokus family uses a hexagonal board instead of a square board, with pieces that are triangular rather than square… this variation brings an excitedly new experience to the game! This version of Blokus is a little more complex than the old Blokus.
Why play the game of Blokus Trigon? For starters consider that Blokus Trigon is an educational game that encourages creative thinking. It’s so much fun, you don’t even realize you’re developing spacial perception! So you can get your brain in high gear. And because the bright colors and simple rules easily keep younger children interested, it makes an ideal family game for ages five and up. That way their brains will be in high gear as well. Older kids and adults will focus more on strategy and blocking their opponents. Younger players will improve their strategy as their understanding of the game process evolves.
How is the game played? If you’re familiar with any of the Blokus games, you will be familiar with the basic principle of Blokus Trigon. Each person has 22 pieces of one color. The objective is simply to place as many of your pieces on the board as you can before the game ends. Each new piece that is placed on the board must touch another piece of the same color, but it cannot touch along a side. Pieces are allowed to touch only at the corners. Players take turns placing their pieces.
You need to be constantly thinking strategically and anticipate your next move to extend your own territory! And at the same time, you need to be thinking ahead about how you will be blocking your opponents. Each playing piece is a different shape, so each move can be decisive.
Winner of numerous awards, including a Mensa award for promoting healthy brain activity, Dr. Toy Best Children’s Product Award, The Most Celebrated Toy of the Century Award, Teachers Choice Award, Parents Choice Gold Award, Top 10 Children’s Choice Award, and many others, Blokus Trigon is definitely not your average board game! I recommend Blokus Trigon for family game night. The entire family will be thrilled!
