In case you haven’t played any others in the KOSMOS range (which I understand is going through a bit of a re-launch at the moment), Ubongo means “brains” in Swahili. And, just like its bigger siblings, you will need to set your mind to the tasks at hand if you are going to win!

Using a double-sided deck of cards, you are tasked with filling in your randomly selected grid using the 8 small polyomino tiles at your disposal.  A new puzzle card is distributed to each player every round with eight rounds making up a full game. But, each grid only has room for 3 (Set A) or 4 (Set B) tiles in total. So it is down to you to tessellate and test until you can fit them in exactly without overlapping or leaving any individual squares exposed.
