    i think allowing each player to walk on their own wall tiles, plus perhaps a method for replacing other's tiles with your own could allow for an interesting strategy mechanic where you use tiles to not only block other players, but to stop them from blocking you

    I really appreciate you reviewing this game. I can see the downfalls, but from what I can see it's the perfect game for me to be able to enjoy with my family (including all the way up from a 46 year old to a 9 year old.) I need more games that can be enjoyable for players of all ages, but accessible to children. If you have any other recommendations for that I would greatly appreciate it!

    why did the pawn cross the board?
    because he rolled a six!

    I like this idea! It’s like Quoridor with more variance. My one complaint right away is that 1d6 movement is not a good movement system. I’d have, say, a base 3 movement speed that’s modified by a d4, or action cards, or something else.

    Game looks great, but I don't know how high the draw rate is for these action cards. It seems too high, maybe you could replace the one on the dice with an ACTION icon to make them more situational, but I don't like that kind of artificial balance. My other concern is that the board is to large. I don't think this is a rational criticism, but It should take about 24 moves to get from one side of the board to the other making the board 5×5 these are all just nitpicks, I'll definitely look out for this game, but I could put in a lot of effort and make a better version of this game that's an issue.

    This looks like a game where you'd play it by the book a couple of times with your friends and then just come up with new rules for it. But luckily it doesn't look like a game where coming up with your own rules would ruin how the gameplay works, u know?

    It looks like a really cool idea. The one thing I was worried about while watching this are those tiles moving all over the place if someone slightly knocks the board. Maybe I'm just a bit OCD, but having dozens of wonky tiles also hurts the minimal aesthetic of the game. I would spend way too long making sure everything was lined up perfectly.

    You should try smash up its a tad complicated and requires a bit of math but its really fun since it references a lot of other games or shows (star wars Jurrasic park Game of Thrones.).There is the main game but it has tons of add-on and an online version. Im not sure if it is good at explaining the basics of the game since it gets complicated but the basis is you get action cards and minions have points while actions dont.depending on how many players there are they have bases and they need a certain amount of points to break which you get from minions. When you break a base you get another set of points which are the ones that depend on you winning(i forgot what they're called but I will just call them Wpoints) When the base is broken there are 3 places each one having differing Wpoints Whoever has the most minion points on the board gets first and so on.I probably did a terrible job explaing this so just go look it up…

    I was a quite shocked when you said players had to roll a dice to move. You don't really see that in too many board games today, and for good reason too.

    Such a bad design – 'miss a turn' such a fun mechanic.

    to 'start' fixing this game i'd associate movement to the cards – a maze card gives a movement of 5-6 and a power card gives a movement of 1-2, no need to roll dice, balances out the cards, gives players more of a choice between 'do i play a maze card to get more movement, or do I need to play a power up card but suffer the movement penalty.

    oh and delete those stupid 'miss a turn' cards

    How many actions would you think is appropriate? What would be your house rules?

    Also, it has that grid/dot illusion. I wonder if it could have been alleviated.
