Swords and Shields

A fun, tactical board game of paths and blocks.

A tactical game in which players compete to control paths on the board. Swords with paths that go unblocked, all the way to the end of the board, score points, while shields block them from scoring. Players take it in turns to place tiles, competing to score as many points as possible. Between one and five boards can be used and placed in different ways, depending how you want to play the game.
