The first piece played of each color is placed in one of the board's four corners. Each new piece played must be placed so that it touches at least one piece of the same color, with only corner-to-corner contact allowed—edges cannot touch. However, edge-to-edge contact is allowed when two pieces of different color are involved.
When a player cannot place a piece, he or she passes, and play continues as normal. The game ends when no one can place a piece.When a game ends, the player with the highest score wins. The score is based on the number of squares in each player's pieces on the board (e.g.
A tetromino is worth 4 points). A player who played all of his or her pieces is awarded a +20 point bonus if the last piece played was a monomino, or a +15 point bonus for any other piece. Two and three player variations Blokus rules allow for two and three player games also. In two-player games, each player takes two colors. In three-player games, either one of the players takes two colors or else 'the pieces of the fourth color are placed on the board in a non-strategic way.' Expansions and spinoffs.

The game also comes with a set of sheets with single-player puzzles, which show positions in which the player needs to connect two pieces following standard Blokus rules.Rumis/Blokus 3D.
