We are a family that LOVES board games. We're always looking for new ones to try. We had seen Blokus a few times but never really knew what it was. For any of you who have never heard of it yourselves, think of a cross between Tetris and Dominoes. All we did know was that everybody that talked about it, loved it.
About once or twice a year I hit up Fred Meyer when they have a sale on board games and pick out a few new ones. I usually just buy games at the thrift store for a couple of dollars. So when I saw the price tag of Blokus at $29.99 my jaw nearly hit the floor. After checking out the box I decided to get it despite the price. It's been one of the best $30 I've ever spent. It is so much fun! It's something that we can all play together without Chris and I getting bored with a simple kid game, and at the same time the boys can play it without getting upset that it's too grown up for them to understand. We even bought the travel version to keep in the van for them to play.
