Ubongo is a competitive puzzler, a blend of Blokus and 'Take It Easy!'. Each player draws a unique random mini board with set of puzzles. A caller rolls a six-sided die to determine, via an index, which puzzle the players must solve individually, under a one minute sand timer. The games rewards players who solve the puzzle faster by giving them priority choice on victory point gems.
The puzzles are like tangrams in which the player fits three or four pieces from a twelve identical polyomino pieces into an outlined shape. There are thirty-six double sided boards with six puzzles on each side, totaling 432 different puzzles.
Korner Entertainment "ported" the boardgame to Win, Wii, DS, PSP, PS3, and iOS. It is the same game with addition of a solo campaign mode where you solve puzzles versus various villains for gems.
