UPDATE: Blokus.com is dead. To play blokus online, I suggest using pentolla.com
Welcome to my blokus strategy blog. The purpose of this blog is to get some Blokus: C2 strategy literature available for players who are looking for tips, and also to be a basis for a blokus strategy book I dream of writing one day. This site is dedicated to the classic version of blokus, played by 2 players only (C2).
Even though the site is intended for beginners, I hope to get a number of posts on more advanced topics eventually. When they show up, I promise to file them appropriately so that you know what type of post you are reading before you start.
BEFORE YOU START you should read the Blokus Basics section. The ABSOLUTELY MOST IMPORTANT thing you need to know to begin learning about Blokus is the piece names. You can read about them in the Blokus Basics section – HERE.
About me: I am a PhD student in mathematics at the University of Toronto. I frequently play blokus on the website www.pentolla.com, currently the only competitive blokus website, where I am one of the creators, and a moderator. My username there is infamouswhiteknight. I have consistently been one of the 3 highest ranked players for the past 6 years, often the highest, both at pentolla.com and blokus.com before that. If you see me online feel free to say hello and start a conversation.
If you have a topic you would like me to blog about (or if you have any other general questions or comments), please post a comment here, and I’ll do my best to answer it or blog about it.
