Very very cool simple game, a multiplayer tetris. (I think thats how it's spelled) Takes a while before other players' moves affect yours, playing with a stratagy is best for this game. If you're someone that loves to beat other people, and get the temper levels up when playing against them, it's very easy to do so in this game.
I will be keeping an eye out for this game in stores.

This game is similar in play to others mentioned previously which is why I think I enjoyed it so much. The Tetris aspect of it was most appealing. Organising my pieces withOUT having two of the sides touching was most challenging.

The game becomes more fun when there are more players and the move you make has the likelihood of mucking up possible avenues for the next player in the circuit. This proved to be a tactic that got me a couple of (good natured?) slaps and expletives hurled in my direction. Good for boosting the fun side, if you can stand the sting. lol.

In short, an entertaining and easy to follow strategy game that will have you going back for more. Great fun.

This is a really fun game to play, it is one of those things that is somewhere between Chess and Tetris but with a twist. In the game the objective is to place as many of your pieces on the board as possible. This is where the fun starts, you can place pieces in ways that block the other players and thus giving yourself more opportunity to win.

This is something that most of the family are able to play but I would not think that it would be suitable for someone younger than ten. It is a good game and will test the logical skills of the participants.

Good clean fun for the whole family.

Similar in nature to one of my favourite place-the-pieces stractegy games, Cathedral, this game has a twist that really threw me for a bit... instead of packing the pieces to eliminate empty spaces, in typical tetris style, you are required to place your pieces so that they only touch at corners, meaning that no faces of same-colour pieces are allowed to touch under any circumstances.

Sure, that sounds simple... until you've played it! All my 'usual' strategies caused embarrassing losses, and it took me four games to work out new paradigms of play to allow me to reclaim a single scant win before packing it up in utter defeat. LOL Icon

Still, an enjoyable game that will appeal to a wide range of gamers, but who might find it wasn't QUITE what they expected... more of a challenege than they first expected. Personally, I think that's a good thing. If a game is easier than I thought, I feel I didn't get value for my money... but if it's tougher, then I feel I got a good deal. This will be one of those. Prices vary, so shop around for the best deal.
