Games
For the past several years , Kevin and Steve have had a blast selling their growing family of simple , fast games : TENZI , SLAPZI , ITZI and PAIRZI . It ’ s been a whirlwind of laughs and fun .
Yet behind the scenes , there was another story playing out . Kevin ’ s son , Collin had another idea for a game . He told his father , “ When kids play with blocks , they ’ re usually slow and deliberate . Why don ’ t we take regular building blocks and turn them into a speed game ?”
A few weeks later , Collin pitched the idea to Kevin and Steve . Steve also liked the concept of a speed building game , but he didn ’ t like using regular old blocks . So off and on over the next three years the guys would meet and , bit-by-bit , improve the game , which they had started calling BUILDZI . But those old block shapes continued to bother Steve ... so when he stumbled upon the cool pentomino shapes you see in the game now , well things just fell into place !
