Blokus board game : an open-source Android implementation of the popular game. Smooth Drag & Drop user interface.
Blokus is a family game involving four players and a board with 20 x 20 squares. Like chess or checkers, it's a game for which at any time you can see your opponent's pieces.

No ads at all! Once installed, you can play offline.

Each player starts with 21 pieces : 1 monomino, 1 domono, 2 triominos, 5 tetraminos and 12 pentaminos. It may recall you the Tetris polyominos...

"For first round, I must place a piece so that it touches one of the corners of the board"

"Next, a piece must be placed so that it touches a corner of one of my own pieces.
It may touch several corners, but never any side/edge of my pieces!" Look at screenshots or at the video.

The game has a nice and natural User Interface : just Drag & Drop the piece with the finger. Rotate a piece likewise.

You can flip a piece to its mirror position with a long-press gesture.

"If a cannot place any more piece I pass my turn."

You can see opponent's remaining pieces, by pressing corresponding tab.

The end of the game is reached when every player passes.
"My score is : addition of the squares of the pieces I placed".

Refer to 'Menu > Help' inside the app. With several screenshots.

You can safely quit at any time : your current game will be restored on next startup.

You play against the machine. You can configure the level of corresponding Artificial Intelligence : 4 levels. Refer to Menu > Preferences

To play against a friend, you can disable AI. Go to Menu > Preferences. Later use the 4 tabs at the bottom to select next player.

Similar to Freebloks 3D.

    This is a perfect strategy game & the app works just as it should. if you play this, you can become a decent player in the face to face board game. I find it the perfect waiting room distraction.

    If you have friends or family and can't or don't want to play chess/checkers, this is a great game. Can even play up to four at the same time and the more the better. Great for fun but a nice strategic game at the same time. To top it it all off, it is completely free but still works with no ads at all. Minor gripe is the handling doesn't feel perfectly smooth but it still is highly playable and i

    Fun game. Almost identical to the real game except you can't flip the pieces! You can rotate them 360 degrees but can't flip them over. I've had so many moves I couldn't make because of this. Soo frustrating

    Easy to play version of the game blokus. I downloaded other apps built to recreate blokus and this is the one I prefer. Just like the board game

    Love this game. Simple interface and hours of fun! If you like the broad game Blokus you'll love this one hands down.

    This plays exactly like a similarly named board game which it's meant to recreate. Ruthless AI which is what makes this game great
