A strategy game for the whole family
Using pentominos and smaller shapes in the same style, the aim is to place all of your color on the grid using one simple rule - your piece must touch at least one corner of your own color, but only the corner(s) of your own color can touch.
Really, that is the one and only rule.
So your colored piece can touch other colors however they will. The 12 Pentomino shapes, and the other shapes, all have shapes you can use to block the other color's corners, so strategic placement is key.
Team play is possible, where you and your partner aim to support each other while colluding to block the other team.
The Cornerstone of Strategy
Every move counts in this award-winning game as players stake their teretory, square by square. The simple rule takes less than a minute to learn, yet the game has the depth to challenge both beginners and experts alike - perfect for the whole family!
Each player chooses a color and takes a set of 21 pieces. Players take turns placing pieces on the board, each starting from the corner of their color.
Each new piece must touch at least one other piece of the same color, but only at the corners! Pieces of the same color can not be in contact along an edge. There are no restrictions on how pieces of different colors may touch each other.
The goal is to cover as much of the board with your pieces as possible. Players who put down all of their pieces earn extra points! Be tactical. Blockade your opponents while expanding your own territory!
The game ends when all players are blocked from laying down any more of their pieces. This also includes any players who may have placed all of their pieces on the board. Scores are tallied. And the winner is ... the player for whom the total area of their remaining pieces is the lowest.
