Djeco's excellent Polyssimo Challenge board game is all about placing as many of the wooden puzzle pieces as you can on the board, so that you're left with the fewest pieces at the end.
Players take turn to choose their pieces, which are shapes made up of five or six squares. Then everyone takes turns to place one on the board, cleverly arranging them to block space and leave opponents with fewer chances to add their own pieces. When there's no space left on the board, everyone counts the number of squares they have left to see who is the winner!
This is a fun game for 2-4 players that makes you think ahead tactically, boosts spatial awareness and can help with maths concepts, too.
