Description

Ubongo is a fast-paced, addictive, and easy-to-learn geometric puzzle game. Players race against the timer and against each other to solve a puzzle of interlocking shapes. The faster you solve the puzzle, the more gems you get. The player with the most valuable gem treasure after nine rounds of solving puzzles wins!

Here's how it works: Each player receives a set of 12 polyominos — geometric shapes formed of equal-size squares joined edge to edge in different arrangements. At the start of each round, each player gets a new puzzle panel. A roll of the die determines which polyominos you must use to perfectly fill in the empty spaces on the puzzle panel. Any players who complete the puzzle within the time limit yell out “Ubongo!” and grab a gem at random from the bag. The fastest player also gets a blue gem and the second fastest an amber gem. Each gem color is worth a different amount of points. After nine rounds, the player with the most valuable gem collection wins.

Download the free companion app, which helps you learn how to play the game, and includes a game timer, a solo game timer, and solution keys.

Ubongo is a Thames & Kosmos game that provides a lot of fun for adults and kids. This game is for 1 to 4 players and is for ages 8 & up. Everyone receives a puzzle board and 12 tiles and has to complete the puzzle before time is up! Definately a challenge for all players.

We play this game a LOT. WE love how easy it is to learn and that it is challenging for our brains! We will use the timer when we are just playing with adults and take it away when we have kids playing with us. My 8-year old plays it and loves it! WE have a great time and love that there is a little variety in difficulty. I bought it for myself and two other families for Christmas. I feel it is a little pricey for the game, but with all the pieces, I understand why there is a higher cost. The game includes bags to hold the pieces in, so I didn't have to go ransacking the ziplock drawer to supply my own. That was nice. :) Quality of the pieces is very good, not flimsy or cheap.
