Labyrinth: Fun for the Entire Family
Labyrinth is an easy-to-learn logic and reasoning game that can be explained in minutes and yet offers a challenge to people of all ages.The wonderful thing about this game is that your family will not outgrow it anytime soon. It’s ever-changing! I know adults who play this game without children.
The object of the game is to navigate an ever-changing maze in order to gather treasure. The game can be played over and over and over again because it is never the same! In order to win, you must constantly think ahead and plan your next move. It’s a perfect game for kids who need to work on their executive functioning skills.
Recommended for: Ages 8 and up
Players: 1-4 players
Time: ~ 2o minutes
