The aMAZEing Labyrinth--shift the maze to reach your goal! Deep within the labyrinth, players search for treasured objects. Stopped by a stone wall? Use the extra tile to shift the maze and open passages for your player to advance.
Players are dealt cards that represent their goals in the maze, and on each turn have one opportunity to shift a row of walls by inserting one extra tile. After moving the maze, the player may advance at will through the open corridors. Often it's possible to reach a goal in one turn; others may prove more elusive! The first player to reach all the assigned goals and return to the starting point wins.
Most reviews mention playing it with kids. Well, I don't have any, but still love the game.
The rules are simple, but gameplay can still be challenging. Add the extra tile to push a row of the maze, then move your piece as far as you can towards your goal. Plays equally well with two, three, or four players.
Game components are sturdy and well constructed. The artwork is also fun.
This game fits well as a bumper between more involved games like Settlers of Catan, LOTR Risk, or Carcasonne.
My whole family loves this game! I enjoy it as much as my kids, ages 4 and 11. We usually play a 'cooperative' version, where we have our cards face up and help one another find the objects. It is fun to see that we often have different ideas on getting through the maze to find the same object. The kids enjoy being able to physically shift the maze, rather than just passively moving a piece around a board. It's a whole new game board every time you play.
The rules are very simple, yet playing the game is not. This is a great game for expanding the logical thinking skills of kids, as you have to be able to think ahead several moves. I also appreciate the beauty and sturdiness of the wooden markers, the maze pieces and the board. They are all high quality. I highly recommend this game!
Maybe I've played this game only once, but I'm already a huge fan of it. It's too cool to be believed; it's got everything a board game needs: a creative idea for the game; easy to understand rules... it's also challenging, but fun to play at the same time. I would definitely recommend this for players of all ages.
