Ubongo! Fun-Size Edition Review (Thames & Kosmos)

Ubongo! Fun-Size Edition
What It Is

Take the classic puzzle game Ubongo! on the go with the smaller and more portable Ubongo! Fun-Size Edition. You can play the game solo or compete against friends, but either way, you're taking eight shaped pieces and trying to figure out where they fit on the puzzle card. When you've solved it, shout, "Ubongo!" You also get a gem token. If you're playing with others, start counting down from 20 to give them time to finish their puzzles. Everyone who solves the puzzle before the countdown, including the first player, earns one point. Gemstones are worth an additional point. After eight rounds, the player with the most points wins.

There are 32 puzzle cards to play, with an easy puzzle on one side and a harder puzzle on the other. Because all of the puzzles are different, players won't be playing the same puzzle, but you'll probably want to play the same difficulty side just to make things more even.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun game for anyone who enjoys solving puzzles. We like that you can play against others or just challenge yourself to improve your skills. If you're looking for a fun family game that will also get your brain working, Ubongo! might be the perfect addition to your family game night.

Who It’s For

Ubongo! Fun-Size Edition is for one to four players ages 7 and up.

What To Be Aware Of
