Gigamic to release Quoridor Junior in October

Quoridor is the classic abstract strategy game where you are trying to get your piece across the board to the other side.  Sounds simple, but on your turn you have two options, move your piece, or place a wall onto the board.  This ratchets up the strategy quickly because now you have to weigh the options between throwing an obstacle into the path of your opponent, and moving yourself closer to victory.  Whoever manages to make it to the other side is the winner.

Quoridor Junior does little to change the game, but does give it an aesthetic upgrade and attempts to give it a bit of theme.  In Quoridor Junior you are different animals aiming for a goal, like a rabbit trying to get to the carrot buffet, or a cat trying to get to some warm milk.  No matter who you play as, the goal and gameplay are the same but with a kinder, gentler coat of paint.  Look for it on store shelves in October of this year.
