This is a simple one player game.
First, take the “Start” and “End” cards out of the deck. Shuffle. Then deal your remaining cards out face down, on a 3X4 grid with “Start” at the top left corner, and “End” at the bottom right corner (both of those will be face up). Deal 5 cards onto each pile. Once all cards are dealt, the grid will look like this:
The idea of the game is to connect “Start” to “End” using the cards in between. A player will start flipping over cards one by one to try and complete the maze.
The cards can’t be moved from file to pile, but they can be spun 180 degrees on top of their pile. Also, cards can be discarded to take a chance at getting a better card underneath, but once discarded, they are removed from the game.
If you complete the maze, you win. It’s tough.
There is another version of the gameplay, that I’ll post next. It’s a faster paced “how far can you go” version.
Maze game was kind my wife’s idea, but I stole it from her and made it better.
Here is the back for all of the cards, as well as a sample front card. Game rules and more images will be coming soon.
The Game Creation Project is something I’ve been thinking about for a while now. I found a company that prints professional quality playing cards at a pretty affordable price. I decided to make up a couple of games and get them printed. Then I started putting out ideas and instantly came up with like 10 games. Creating the games felt awesome.
Afterwards, I came up with the idea of a project where I’m constantly making new games and sharing them as they develop. Making any kind of game I can think of, using playing cards as a base. Posting my ideas as they come to me, and sharing artwork as it’s created. Over time I would develop the good games and forget the crap ones.
This is going to be fun, right?
