Maze of the Minotaur (Contest Copy)

Get the inscription before the minotaur gets you

Rumour has it that there is a secret inscription at the centre of the labyrinth. Some say it is the location of treasure, others say it is a note from the gods, still others believe it is a really good humus recipe. Your gang has broken through the ceiling and when it came time to decide who stays outside on guard and who goes in you drew the short straw. Other gangs have broken into the labyrinth at other points.

But Daedalus didn't design an ordinary maze. The deadly pit wasn't enough of a threat; he designed it so that large chunks of flooring would randomly slide about allowing the pit to move. The king thought that this was a nice touch, but decided that having a murderous minotaur stand guard would be even better.

Players take turns moving themselves, the minotaur and the maze - each trying to be the first to get to the inscription and get out. There are four treasure chests for which each player has a key to each, from which they can try to get magical items that might aid there quest, but must be careful not to take a cursed item by mistake.


NOTE: This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
