Pentobi

Pentobi is a computer opponent for the board game Blokus. In this game, four players place pieces similar to the pieces of the computer game Tetris on a 20×20 board. Pentobi also supports the game variants for two or three players and the game variants Duo, Trigon, Junior and Nexos.

If you don't know the game of Blokus, Pentobi also includes a nice primer.

Great game for when you have 5 minutes to spare...
It is also featureful. Undo last move, redo...

I have not tested it yet, but apparently it even has the ability to rate your play and track your improvement (or lack there of ;)!

How do I get to the primer? I couldn't find that option, but then again I found it relatively easy to figure out how to play. Or do you just mean the F1 help?

yea, the help explains the rules (which is not much, its an easy game :)) and variants...

Ah, thanks. Yes, that's quite short but useful. Experimenting with the boards is even easier, though the instructions were helpful in ensuring I'd not missed anything.

Yes, I played a ranking game. It started me at 1000 points, and I lost the first game, so it demoted me immediately ;)
