Description

The timer provides another fun wrinkle to the game: players are allowed to talk freely whenever the timer is flipped. In this game players take on the actions available to four heroes who are trying to steal new weapons from a nearby mall and escape with them. Especially when you egg the person on by casually tapping the pawn while you’re waiting for them to act.

These times are necessary, but they are never long enough because the sand is flowing during these mini-discussions, and players aren’t allowed to touch any pieces–if they do, talking time is over. And Magic Maze is quirky enough and fun enough that it’s a good game to show off to people wary of hobby games, so it has a utility beyond just games that hold my interest. Before another piece is touched, the players may speak and gesture, but as soon as a piece is touched, the no-communication rules are back in effect. Although by then we played through all of the scenarios – some a couple of times – and everyone either enjoyed their time playing or was too stressed to speak badly of the game.

I’ve played it four players with two separate groups and the most enthusiastic anyone has been so far is to say, ‘I don’t know – it’s okay! This is merely a matter of taste: what was a turn off for me was a selling point to others in my group. This is a nice package–a little spartan, but the game doesn’t come with (or need) extraneous components.

When all heroes are at their respective spaces they steal items, and then it’s time to make your escape without being caught. This creates some unintentional but wonderfully playful moments of bewilderment and mild frustration. She’s banging the ‘do something’ pawn again and again and again and all she’s done is move the purple. The visible confusion as they look back and forth over the characters, wondering what they’ve missed, but unable to ask anyone for help. However, you are allowed to communicate only for short periods during the game; the rest of the time, you must play without giving any visual or audio cues to each other.The players are definitely working together, but even so, if there are five players at the table, there might be five plans for what is the best course of action. Not like any other game I’ve played before, it’s really good fun and gets you thinking and playing in a new way. When a Hero Pawn is placed either at the foot or peak of an Escalator Space then you may move the Hero Pawn up or down accordingly.
