Who would love this: All ages board game lovers!
Some games need no explanation: You know instantly it’s going to capture your heart and keep you engaged for hours! Buildzi is exactly that sort of game - it’s creative, colourful, and addictively fun. Thank you Divisible by Zero for providing this really awesome game!
Why I love ❤️ it:
(1) Super Fun Building Game - Once you start stacking these blocks into various incredible and almost “gravity-defying” vertical structures, it’s impossible to stop! Buildzi comes with 32 blocks (4 sets of 8), 32 double-sided Tower Cards, and 32 Block Cards. To do the “Tower Cards” version, simply select a challenge, and replicate the structure on the card using a set of 8 pentomino blocks. Some challenges are straightforward and easy to accomplish. Some require certain sequence to be complied with in order to achieve the symmetrical balance to hold up the structures. This is an amazing game that teaches engineering concepts and structural integrity in an entertaining way! There are loads of surprise elements in this game, loads of “wow, I can’t believe I built this!”, and excited exclamations of “woah, it actually stands!”. One side of the cards display the complete colours and arrangements of all 8 blocks. The reverse side of the cards show the silhouette of towers in black, which makes it a tad trickier for kids.
(2) Different Ways To Play - There are SO MANY ways to play with these blocks: solitarily, competitively, or cooperatively. This is a game for all ages and skill levels. In the “Block Cards” version, players race to build the most epic tower following the order of the shuffled Block Cards. There is also a “solo game” version where player can build towers at their own pace without pressure of beating the time.
(3) Colours! - The colours are SO visually attractive; they are BRIGHT, appealing, in rainbow-colours range, and loved by all kids almost immediately!
(4) Light Weight + Durable Box - Material wise, the blocks are made of light weight plastic, which is a “less scary” option compared to the heavy wooden type. They don’t make deafening loud noises when the block towers collapse (which is great). I also love the sturdy box, with illustrative hints on how to re-arrange the blocks properly back into the box for quick and easy pack-up.
