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 BeallSee all Product description

The goal is simple - get your pawn to the other side of the board, which starts off empty. On your turn you can make one of two moves - either move your pawn one square adjacent, or put down one of your ten fences. The fences are impassable, and you place them to hinder your opponent's progress. The only rule about placement is that you cannot make it COMPLETELY impossible for your opponent (or yourself) to get to the other side. Backtrack the entire way? Go for it!
I have only two complaints, neither of which are severe enough to lower this to a four-star ratings.
The first is that the pawns are slightly too big, or the board is slightly too small. Because there are notches cut into the board to place the fences in, and the pawns are exactly the size of the space they sit on, it's very easy to knock them around when you're trying to place a fence.
The other is that the board could have been better designed to accomodate four players. The gameplay has no issue with four players, and is loads of chaotic fun. There's just no storage space for the 3rd and 4th player to hold their fences, but it's not a big deal, you can just hold them in your hand or on the table. It just seems odd that the game designer built spots for two players to hold fences but not for four.
Either way, this is a fantastic game that can be played in under ten minutes with a depth of strategy and simple rules. I highly recommend it.
As far as construction goes, the board and pieces are very well made. It is a nice set that you can leave out as part of your game room decor.
Now on to game play. Turns out my 5 year old is good at Quoridor. REALLY good. In the first game either of us ever played, she finished the game when I was still 3 spaces from where I started. At one point she blocked me on 3 sides with ease. In the very next she blocked a hole I was praying she wouldn't see and sent me backward 10 spaces. She begs to play every night (and a little piece of my ego dies every time she freaks me).
Its a brain tickler/teaser game so you must have some interest in mind games / board games to enjoy this. It's also a very pretty board that would display well set out on a coffee table or end table.
I was very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the game. It took less than a minute to learn the rules, which are very simple. Simple rules, yet challenging game play.
This game has brought my family and friends many, many hours of enjoyment and I can't recommend it highly enough.
