Hello everyone,

We are Mindgrub Games, a subdivision of Mindgrub, which is a technology innovation agency located in Baltimore, Maryland.

We have created a fun, multi-player board game called Grouper. The objective of the game is to have the fewest groups of tiles on the board. It’s perfect for family game night or for waiting to be seated at a restaurant with a group of friends.

We know you all are die hard board game lovers and would love to hear your feedback on our game! It's available on both iOS and Android platforms.

Check us out on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date with our latest games!

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

A link would be helpful. We're all capable of searching, of course, but still.

It's very similar to Blockers, but with two different rules sets you can choose from. You can read more about it at www.groupergame.com We have a free version and a paid version and it's available on iOS and Android.

You can also check out the other games we've developed at www.mindgrubgames.com

We're curious to hear what you all think!

Honestly?

The first thing I thought was "this guy has a Newuser banner, so he can't have much knowledge in gaming ..."

The second thing I thought was "bah, it's an abstract ..."

However, I might not be your target group
Good luck with your game!

I couldn't find anything on that link that described how similar / different it was to Blockers, nor anything that mentioned two different sets of rules.

Similar to Blockers, you want to place tiles to make groups; the less groups the better. You can steal tiles, but how stealing affects your score is determined by our two rule sets. See the screenshot for more information, or download the game (there is a free version!) for a full explanation of the rules.

So there's nothing original here. You have the choice to play using the original Uptown rules, or by the Blockers rules.
