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).
I also plan to post regular or semi-regular blokus puzzles for you to play with. The puzzles appear here. The best way to attempt the puzzles is with the amazing (free!) blokus software pentobi. The project site for pentobi is here. You can skip right to the pentobi downloads section here. (Update May 2015: I haven’t been posting puzzles for a while due to the demands of completing my PhD, but now that I’m done, you will start to see more of these again!)
Even though the site is intended for beginners, I will occasionally discuss more advanced topics as well. 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.
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.
