A game by any other name still plays the same. So is the case with Blokus 3D, the new name, but unchanged game, of Rumis.

As in Blokus Classic, you have an assortment of differently shaped pieces you must place within the constrained area close to your previously placed pieces. The difference is a) it’s 3d cubes, instead of squares, b) you can choose from a variety of different shapes, c) pieces must touch face to face, not corner to corner, and d) you add points for faces exposed at the end of the game.

So obvious a connection is there between the two games that two years ago one Rumis reviewer on BGG called the game 3D Blokus, years before the companies made the same connection.
