Introduction

Barricade, also known as Malefiz, is inspired from the famous board game of type "pawn race" which is a turn based game. It is a simple game that can be played by the whole family, from parents to children.

If it is simple, it is however captivating because it requires a good strategy : you need to make a smart balance between :

  • Blocking the enemies
  • Attacking the enemies
  • Protecting your pawns
  • Moves quickness
  • Grouping your pawns for a higher power

Barricade can be played alone against the computer or with 2, 3, 4 players..., depending on the game board. It can be played on the same machine, on the local network (LAN) or through the internet. With more than 2 players, it is even more distracting because of the temporary alliances than can be established and stopped during the game : no matter the method, you need to prevent the others from arriving to the final square before you ! A board editor is also available and you can share your creations from the boards catalog of the official site.
