Product Description

Amazon.com

A winner of many international commendations and awards, Quoridor Classic 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. Quoridor Classic 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. Players utilize analytical and logistical thinking, as well as math-minded strategy. The game includes four 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. Quoridor Classic accommodates two to four players. --Diane Beall

Product Description

Quoridor is a delightful strategy game for 2, 3 or 4 players that takes less than 10 minutes to play. On each turn you need to decide whether to move your pond ahead one space or foil your opponent's progress by a carefully placed fence.

Your goal is to be first to move your pawn across the board. Other players will seek to place obstacles in your path. This forces additional moves to navigate around the fences. You also can place blocking fences to foil your opponent's forward progress.

This Classic Version of Quoridor game board measures 10.4 inches square. Complete instructions in English, Spanish, French, Dutch, and German.

Quoridor is one of several wood strategy games (including Quarto, Pylos, Quads, Katamino, Inside, Quixo) by French Game Manufacturer GIGAMIC.

Gigamic Games have been distributed by several different game companies in the United States over the past many years (including Family Games and Fundex Games). Same great game just new distributor (Back Alley Traders as of 2010). Their games have proven to be entertaining, thought provoking and well received. Recommended for ages 8 to 105 years.

Simple rules, yet challenging game play.
James A. Dunaway
A game can be played in about 10-15 minutes so it is easy to play a few rounds before calling it quits.
K. Groh
From children to adults, this game is a great challenge and a fun time.

I bought this game for my 11-year old son, and now I find myself asking everyone in my family if they can spare 15 minutes to play a game with me! The game play is simple: on each turn, either move your pawn one space closer to the finish line, or use one of your two-square wide tiles to block your opponent's progress (you start with ten of these), but you can't completely block them in. Whoever gets there first, wins! Each game takes on its own personality, as new strategies constantly evolve. We also handicap the grownups when they play the kids by allowing them to only use 7 or 8 of their tiles, which gives the kids a fair chance to win. Games take anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes to play, and the beautiful wooden gameboard and pieces are fun to use. Like chess and checkers, it's all skill and no luck. This has become my favorite game! I'd recommend it for anyone age 7 or older who likes thinking games.

The game concept is very good. In fact, I give the game concept 5 out of 5 stars. Unfortunately, the execution of the game board is a bit lacking.

First, the board is small. The squares are much smaller than a traditional chess game board. This, combined with the fact that the pieces are a bit wobbly, makes the game somewhat frustrating because the pieces often fall over.

Second, the game is designed for two or four players, but the board is really only designed for two players. The board should be symmetrical for all four players, but there is only a "bank" to hold the fences for two of the players. Even more frustrating, the board is sized symmetrically for all four players, but for two of the players, the space is just left empty.

If they ever come out with a larger, truly four player edition, I will get it and rate it a five.

Elegant execution of an elegant fundamental concept. Simple rules. Room for very deep strategy, yet fun strategic discoveries are accessible even at beginner levels. Beginners correctly feel they understand enough to make respectable moves and to create problems for the opponent. Surprising turns of advantage can occur.

Both players get 11 pieces: 1 pawn plus 10 fences. Each turn you move your pawn of place a fence. To win, get your pawn from the north edge to the south edge, while your opponent tries to get his pawn from south to north. You are not allowed to create an impenetrable complete chain of fences. Thus sometimes you place a fence to seal all but one remaining opening for your pawn, making it illegal for your opponent to block your pawn's path out -- which sometimes takes you unstoppably to your winning destination!

At times you can make a move that looks terrible for you to the eye yet is a winning move. What is visually happening on the board translates very well to an impression of the strategic effects of the moves, somewhat like Twixt.
Chess players will immediately recognize a loose analog of king opposition in chess endgames, and will feel similar issues surrounding immobility. Unlike chess or Khet, you never suffer a discouraging and probably permanent material deficit.
Playing Quoridor gives me a feeling that is a hybrid of what Twixt and Chess make me feel.

Khet is another great game I have yet encountered with this elegance and the other attributes at the same superb level as Twixt and Quoridor. Quoridor has fewer blunders than Khet (blunders in Khet feel much less forgivable than in chess, yet are more frequent in Khet than in chess). Quoridor is a Wow.

My wife knows nothing about games.

Quoridor is quite a bit of fun, particularly if you enjoy games that require more thinking, like Mastermind. Game time is short, so even young players can play and then play again without feeling like they're tied to a game of chess. The game does require some strategy-sense, so not sure if 8 and up is appropriate, maybe 12 and up. Adults will have the most fun however since you can easily play 4 or 5 games an hour.

This review was originally posted on [...] please check it out for more games that have made an impact.

Today I bring you a simple game that will keep you frustrated...or elated for the rest of the day: Quoridor. If you haven't heard of Gigamic Games you are missing out. For all of you chess-lovers out there, this game is for you. Though not quite as involved as Chess, Quoridor is a game that will keep you in a full blown parry with your opponent till the end.

The Game is simple and beautiful. Either two or four players, try to out wit their opponents by creating an elaborate maze for their opponent to move through. Small domino-shaped blocks are used to throw up walls and barriers that your opponent must get around. Be careful not to get cocky, because it doesn't take long for the tables to turn and your opponent to have the upper hand. Each player starts out with 10 fences at their disposal. A turn consists of either placing a fence or moving your pawn. The object of the game is to get to your opponents side. Choose wisely. Once you have placed all of your fences you have no choice but to move your pawn; and if you aren't careful, you may get trapped in the nightmare that you built for your opponent not long before.

Cons

1.) Predictable - The game is a great idea and fun for a couple rounds, but playing against the same person multiple times in a row will get pretty old pretty fast. If you don't have new opponents who think a new way then you may find yourself experiencing deja vu as you set up almost the exact same board as you did the last game. I recommend playing a maximum of twice with the same person then giving it a rest.
