The objective of Quoridor is quite simple, get your pawn from one end of the board to the other. Sounds easy enough right?

Echidna Shuffle

  • Players: 2 to 6 players
  • Age Range: 6yrs old and up
  • Time to Play: About 15min

This is a game that beginners and pros alike can both enjoy. The goal of Echidnas Shuffle is to get your brightly colored bugs to their matching stump homes, while riding on the back of cute little echidnas. (By the way, Echidnas are such neat creatures.) With a series of dice rolls, players get to move a specific amount of echidnas to desired locations on the board. Overall. the game is very straight forward, creating some great family fun. While being lighthearted and simple, serious board game enthusiasts can create some real havoc to their opponents with some strategic planning, making it more difficult to return their bugs to their homes!

Echidna Shuffle. Do not be fooled by the look or suggested age range (6+) of this game. It is a cutthroat and nasty...
