Ready, Set, Play!

The whole game takes five, maybe ten minute to set up, easy to teach and easy to learn. Each player (either 2 or 4), for 2 player set up you get 11 pieces: 1 pawn plus 10 fences.

The objective of the game is to move your pawn one space at a time to the other side of the board.

At the start of the game, the pawns start out in the centre   of the board rather than on the opposite ends

The Winner is the first to reach the other side wins, by applying forward thinking and lots of planning.

Sound simple! But you and your opponent(s) have walls that can be placed. Each turn poses a question: do you move your pawn or do you place a wall to block your opponent’s moves.

On your turn you can either move your pawn one square horizontally or vertically, or you can add a wall. These two choices seem remarkably familiar, elegantly embodying a fundamental political dynamic: to advance our own cause, or to prevent the opposition from advancing

The only caveat is that you must always leave a way through and not completely surround your opponent.

Every game of Quoridor invites you to come up with new ways to play, every time.

Hope you buy this lovely product ! It’s a great educational and family friendly game.
