Blokus Classic: Fun Learning Game, Lots of Learning Benefits
If you’re going to get your kids (ages 7 or older) a game for the holidays, give them Blokus. Blokus helps develop strategic skills and logic, plus it’s fun to play (even for parents). Blokus starts with a simple premise: each player has to fit as many of their pieces on the board as possible. Kids use logic and strategy as they try to “block” their opponents from expanding territory. When one player gets all their pieces on the board, the game ends. DreamBox Learning isn’t the only one that gives Blokus a stamp of approval; Blokus won the Mensa “Best Mind Game” award in 2003!
Ages: 7 and up
