Ubongo is 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.
Tetris and puzzle fans will love Ubongo. Turn and flip the tiles in a race against the clock, and see if you can solve the puzzle.
For me, one thing that does take a little getting used to is thinking to flip the tiles over instead of only thinking in 2D, as you would in a game of Tetris.
I love that you can play Ubongo by yourself, and with others. And with 432 different puzzles to solve, Ubongo will never get old.
