    The objective of Quoridor is to advance your pawn to the opposite end of the board. With each turn, you're faced with a decision: move your pawn or place a wall to hinder your opponent. The first pawn to the other side wins. But don't be fooled by this Mensa Select Winner's simple rules. The strategic thinking, planning and problem solving skills needed to master Quoridor are enough to make corporate takeover geniuses salivate. This fast-paced strategy game will have you playing round after round, learning from trial and error, and developing your strategy as you go.

    How to Play:

    Each player gets a pawn and ten gates. The pawns start on opposite sides of the board. In turn, players can choose whether they want to move their pawn one space up, down, left, or right (no diagonals); or place a gate somewhere on the board. Pawns have to maneuver around the gates with the goal of getting to the other side of the board. Pawns cannot be trapped by the gates - they have to be left with at least one way to get to the other side.

    How to Win:

    The first player to get to the opposite side of the board is the winner.
