Strategy Game: Quoridor (ages 6+)
I don’t know about you, but there are times when the kids complain about being bored and not having anything to do. We’ve been trying to bring out some board games that don’t get much use during the school year. A couple weeks ago, I wrote about a game called Quarto. Another quick strategy game we’ve been playing this summer is called Quoridor. (affiliate link) The goal of this game is simple, to be the first player to reach the opposite side of the board. What keeps it challenging is that your opponent can place barriers from letting you get across.

Your opponent tries to stop you from reaching the other side by putting up fences to block your path and slow you down. On your turn, you have a choice of moving one space or putting a fence in place. At times you might be forced to back-track and retrace your steps along the maze of fences!
This game is recommended for ages 6+. My kids have all enjoyed it.
