OVERVIEW OF LABYRINTH JUNIOR
Labyrinth Junior is a children’s maze game for 1 to 4 players. The goal of the game is to make your way through the maze and collect the most chip along your way.
The maze tiles will be placed into the empty spaces of the board. One tile will remain for gameplay later. The chips should be shuffled and placed next to the board object-side down. Each player will then choose a ghost and place it on its matching colored corner. The game is now ready to play.
The game starts with the youngest player and continues clockwise from them. On a player’s turn, they will reveal a chip if one has not been revealed already. This is the object all players are trying to reach first. Then looking at the board they will see the best course of action to reach their current object. They will take the extra piece and pick one of the yellow arrows around the board. Once an arrow has been chosen, they will slide the piece in following the direction of the arrow and displacing the piece at the opposite end.
If there was a player displaced off the board this way they will be transferred to the newly added piece.
Once the new piece has been added a player may move their character as far down the path they are currently on as they wish. Players may also choose to not move at all.
If a player can successfully reach the object, they were currently searching for they may take the revealed chip and place it face up in front of them. On the next turn, a new chip will be revealed.
If you cannot reach your goal directly it is good practice to set yourself up to be in a good position to reach your object next turn.
Players may occupy the same spot on the board.
END OF GAME
The game ends when all the chips have been won, the player who has collected the most chips wins the game.
To make it more challenging a couple of changes can be made to the rules.
The chips are shuffled and dealt out equally and secretively to all players. On a player’s turn, if they have not already, they may look at their top chip to see which object they are searching for. When a player reaches that object, they may reveal the chip and move to their next secret object. The winner is the first player to reveal all their chips.
