The object of Stonewall is to race your opponents from your starting point to your diagonally opposite corner of a 144 square grid board and back again by the roll of the dice. Every time you move you may place one wall piece of any length (single,double or triple)on the playing board to help your path or hinder your opponent. Rolling a four will get you an extra turn and landing on an occupied square will send your opponent back to the start. Once you have made it to your opposite corner on the turn you pass around it you must change one wall that has already been placed, this can be done to speed up your path home or to force an opponent to go backwards if they are winning.
Stonewall has great strategy play patterns but the dice play throws the element of luck into it. As a two player game Stonewall is very competitive yet as a four player game it is very social. New Zealand Consumer Magazine has rated us as the top game in there December 2000 issue after having the game independently play tested,and we are now starting to sell thousands throughout New Zealand.
