Quoridor online

Quoridor is a very interesting board game, used to play at the MENSA contests. It worth to try it at least one time and see how, being as simple as it is, quoridor can be a very challenging game if you find an opponent with a bit of practice. The rules are very clearly explained here.

In order to test some algorithms, I developed this simple quoridor game in javascript to obtain in my own database, a representative number of games played by humans. Here is the link where you can play it online:

A few simple routines are written in javascript and for the online sync between players I am using firebase services. Some features of the game are still in development.

You can find an interesting B.Sc. thesis of L. Glendenning about the game here., and there is also an interesting paper written by P. Mertens  here.
