A friend of mine spoke about a game with rules a little bit similar to Quoridor but different.

The rules are the following:

  • you have a board constituted of squares
  • each player has a pawn which he has to move until the opposite side
  • each player has several walls consisting of two square pieces
  • each move a player can either:
    • move his pawn of one square
    • place a wall to a position on the board but always let an escape route for the opponent: unlike Quoridor the walls are placed on the square rather than between them.
  • the game is won when the pawn reaches the opposite side

I'm curious if you know the name of this game.

edit :

It was actually qoridor but the rules was wrongly explained you can close the question as incorrect.

  • @XavierCombelle that sounds like someone mis-remembering, or mis-playing, quoridor, then.
