Quoridor is a fast-moving strategy game that is similar to chess insofar as players move pawn-shaped pieces across the board. The difference is that there are wooden fences one erects to block the progress of and force a different route upon an opponent. The physical blocks are quite effective for discouraging daring moves, and encouraging more competitive players.
A winner of many international commendations and awards, Quoridor is a near-perfect game. Its objective is clear, not convoluted; the physical game is stylish, sturdy, and well made; and it has broad player appeal--it's great for families with players of varying ages.
Players use analytical and logistical thinking, as well as math-minded strategy.
The game includes 4 pawn-shaped, smooth wooden pieces that are stylishly stained. The fences are natural wood. The playing board is made of heavy, carved wood that is richly stained and finished.
For 2-4 Players, Ages 8 - Adult, 15 minutes playing time. Measures 7 x 1.85 x 7 inches.
