I am excited to be entering a new season in my life, that of playing board games with my grandchildren. Thankfully significant companies have begun to recognize the value of multi-generational play. There are now games for families who have members bored with Chutes and Ladders, though not ready for Escape-the-Room. GridBlock is such a game, with simple enough gameplay that a 4-year-old can understand while also possessing a depth of play that parents, and even grandparents, find challenging and engaging.
Playing GridBlock during school time has been one of the highlights of the day! The rules are super simple – pieces of the same color MUST touch, and pieces of the same shape must NOT touch. Whoever places the most pieces onto the grid wins the game! Each player has just four pieces to use, so the game plays very fast.
GridBlock components are top-quality for lasting durability. For 2 – 4 players, family-friendly GridBlock encourages strategy skills, planning, critical thinking, and logic.
