UPDATE: is dead.  To play blokus online, I suggest using

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, 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 and 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.

    I’ve been trying to find Blokus Trigon everywhere on the internet but it’s out of stock on every single site. Do you know where I can find it?

      You’re looking for the board game Blokus Trigon? Mattel stopped making it, which is why it’s out of stock everywhere (sad, I know!).
      Depending on where you are, I’d look at some local games stores and see if they still have old copies, but it gets harder and harder, and you might just be out of luck. You can probably still get some copies on ebay, craigslist, or other second-hand websites.
      Good luck!
