So if you look at the picture, I've shown two ways to place a five square piece that look like a "U". In the first situation on the right, you can see that the red player is trying to much to go around the blue player and he places it in a way that is opponent won't have any difficulty running trough the red player's barricades! On the left side of the Blokus game board, you see a much better way of protecting your ground. With this setup, the blue player would need a one square piece to go through. There's only one blokus piece that would let you in with this way of laying down the squares. On the other hand (the example on the left), any Blokus piece could be place to go through the red wall. So, if you manage to reproduce this Blokus block strategy at two, three or more places on the board, your opponent will soon be trapped and confined on his side of the fence! This blokus tactic with the "Race for Blokus board center" strategy should improve your overall score at Blokus.
In my next post, I will share more Blokus strategy. To give you an idea of it, think about this: Is it always the good choice to put all five square Blokus pieces first? The answer... NO!
