The Magic Labyrinth

The Magic Labyrinth

Fall 2010 Games
Ages: 6 & Up
Price: $30.00

The Magic Labyrinth is a fun twist on the traditional memory game that makes it appealing to children (and adults) of all ages. The goal of the game is to obtain as many "magic symbol chips" as possible. To obtain the chips, you have to move your pawn across a labyrinth, the walls of which are hidden underneath the game board. Each pawn has a "magical" magnet on it, and the magnet is moved from underneath the board. If you run into a wall the magnet falls off and you have to start over. The goal is to remember where the different walls are so you can avoid them in the future. The person with the most chips wins. The game is versatile, as the labyrinth's difficulty can be adjusted for different age and skill levels. For young children, place just a few walls. For older kids, it's possible to create very challenging labyrinth with many walls. As your child's memory improves, you can add more walls. This game both educational and fun, and its flexible difficulty level allows it to grow with your child.
