Its a nice looking game board. What is Qoridor, I have never heard of it.

Thanks for showing this Glen! I’m always looking for new game type stuff for my grandkids and you’ve just given me one of those ideas. I really like having “a built in box” to keep everything together. By the way….. how many fences does each player get?

Quoridor is played on a game board of 81 square spaces (9×9). Each player is represented by a pawn which begins at the center space of one edge of the board (in a two-player game, the pawns begin opposite each other). The object is to be the first player to move his/her pawn to any space on the opposite side of the gameboard from which it begins.The distinguishing characteristic of Quoridor is its twenty walls. Walls are flat two-space-wide pieces which can be placed in the groove that runs between the spaces. Walls block the path of all pawns, which must go around them. The walls are divided equally among the players at the start of the game, and once placed, cannot be moved or removed. On a turn, a player may either move his/her pawn, or, if possible, place a wall.Pawns can be moved to an adjacent space (not diagonally), or, if adjacent to another pawn, jump over that pawn. If an adjacent pawn has a third pawn or a wall on the other side of it, the player may move to any other space adjacent to the jumped pawn which is not blocked. The official rules are ambiguous concerning the edge of the board.Walls can be placed in any groove between spaces not already occupied by a wall, so long as the wall faces four spaces (two on either side). However, a wall may not be placed which cuts off the only remaining path of any pawn to the side of the board it must reach

Great looking board game, and great workman ship as well. I will have to save the directions that Mike Gager posted and give it whirl.
Thanks for sharing!

Hey Glen – looks like an awesome job. Do you mind sharing the dimensions you used for the game board? how many walls did you have to make?
