Ubongo Game Night

Ubongo Game Night
― Apr 28 - 30, 2017 ―

Join the sprint to solve the puzzle with Ubongo—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 until the player with the most after nine rounds wins!

With more than 3.5 million copies sold worldwide, Ubongo is a Parents' Choice Silver Honor Award Winner. Each Ubongo set can be played both solo and with up to four players; the game includes 36 double-sided puzzle boards (with 432 different puzzles), game tiles, a game round track, an hourglass, gems, 1 die, and a cloth bag. Players can download the free companion app which can help one learn how to play the game and includes a game timer, a solo game timer, and solution keys.

About Ubongo

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.


About Thames & Kosmos

Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 by a science museum director and her son, who saw the great need and demand for better science education materials—resources for parents and their children that are more engaging, more effective, more relevant, and more fun. Our mission has since expanded from its STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) roots to encompass other educational branches as well, including arts and crafts and early childhood learning, and most recently, the multitude of thinking and social skills that can be taught through board games.

The games in our new—but quickly growing!—board game catalog are not only fun, enchanting, and addictive, but also beneficial and wholesome in so many ways: These games stimulate logical and strategic thinking, promote visual-spatial and math skills, cultivate physical coordination and manual dexterity, encourage family time, and inspire fair-mindedness, confidence, and honorable attitudes. For all these reasons, our games become enduring family favorites and game night classics—fun for both kids and adults!

We bought this for our grandson's 8th birthday. It has been so much fun and challenging. It makes your head work and we have such a good time playing this game. The age range beginning at 8 to adult is perfect. You will not regret buying this for yourself [or] as a gift!!!
