The aMAZEing Labyrinth

Day 16 - The aMAZEing Labyrinth
Designed by Max J. Kobbert

The aMAZEing Labyrinth is a classic game from my childhood and one that I played often. Labyrinth for short, the game's objective is to collect different assigned treasures or tokens from the labyrinth before your opponents. The board is made up of stationary tiles and tiles that are allowed to move, creating rows and columns if you will that you can slide back and forth. Your turn consists of pushing the extra tile into one of the rows sliding that row one direction and providing a new tile that fell of the other side to the next player. The player then can move freely in any direction as long as he is free to do so. The game's mechanism for changing the maze is truly original and fantastic. The game is very simple and a great children's game. There is a bit of luck due to what cards you are dealt and have to find in the maze. The game is made for 1-4 players, although I don't think this would be a very entertaining 1 player game. It takes about 20 minutes or so, perhaps quicker. I came out victorious tonight by finding little Miss Piggy, my final card, and making it back to home base. It's good to reminisce about one's childhood now and again. You can play online if you want. Have a great night, and that is How Lou Sees It.
