The aMAZEing Labyrinth
Posted On 9/3/2012
The aMAZEing Labyrinth, or simply Labyrinth, in the original German game, is a children's sliding-puzzle boardgame. Players, in turn, race to get their avatar pawns to randomized assigned objects in a labyrinth. When a player picks up all the items, she heads for her starting spot to claim victory. The twist is that the labyrinth keeps changing as each player also shifts the labyrinth by playing labyrinth tiles. Tiles are are arranged in a 7 by 7 grid. The players can slide a new labyrinth tile in one of twelve edged spots, pushing an entire row or column of the maze.
Labyrinth is a popular game and multiple versions designed for varying ages have been created; it's also been rethemed for various movie franchises over the last 25 years. Ports are available for the Nintendo DS, iOS, and Flash. The online Flash version is a variant because normally every player gets a assigned a different item, rather than the same item. If you want to give a quality game to eight-year old, there is no better game out there.
