THE GATEWAY DRUG OF GAMES

If you love intense, strategic, four-hour-long Eurogames, sometimes it’s hard to convince others to play them with you. “Sorry, I have a root canal scheduled,” will be repeated more than once. If only our friends knew the JOY of developing a master plan, and deftly executing it in the comfort of one’s living room! Now, we can help them take the first step down the road to board game addiction, with the 2017 Spiel des Jahres Nominee, Magic Maze.

In this cooperative grid-movement game, you’re a poor escaped convict in a magical land who barely got out of prison with the clothes on your back. You need supplies! You need weapons! And where do we go to get these weapons? The Magic Maze Mall, of course!

Four characters work simultaneously in real time to pull off the heist of the century. You, and 1-7 of your best friends, have to work quickly with carefully coordinated movements to snatch your loot and get out of the mall before the guards get back.

Oh and… there’s one more thing… you can’t talk to each other. You can only stare intently into someone’s eyes, or pound a special piece in front of another player.

There’s no better gateway to the world of strategic games than Magic Maze. Just don’t break the table.
