I have a Blokus problem

Recommended Posts

Obviously the word should be pronounced BlO-kus (not Block-us). Latin rules & all.


But my dc (& dh!) keep saying "Blockus." It came to a head tonight, & I looked up the official pronunciation. The website says "Blockus."


It offends me so deeply, I want to throw the game out. What to do? :confused: :001_smile:

We borrowed it from some friends recently, and I kept wondering why my friend pronounced it wrong--it's obviously spelled blo-kus Then I realized the point of the game is to block everyone else. You'd think they could bother to spell their game correctly. ;)


ETA: maybe you could get a Sharpie and fix the spelling on the box, so it's less offensive...
