New Kickstarter Project Reinvents the Maze Puzzle Game for the Whole Family
The scroll format is not the only thing that makes these maze puzzle games unique. The puzzles open new opportunities to play the maze puzzle, including multi-player game-play with or without the use of dice. In addition, the puzzles are designed using a variety of new graphic styles.
The six MazeScrolls that are part of the Kickstarter campaign are the following: MazeScroll 28, A Galaxy Far, Faar, Faaar Away, MazeScroll 31, De Stijl Mile, MazeScroll 35, Daedalus Treasure, MazeScroll 38, Lover's Duel, MazeScroll 40, Daedalus Palace, and MazeScroll 45, Scritches, Scretches and Scrutches.
Unlike the traditional maze puzzles that are created for one person play, the MazeScrolls are created for group play (Although they still can be played by a single player like a traditional maze puzzle.). This is the advantage that the 48 inch long scroll offers. Two players can comfortably sit side-by-side in front of the MazeScroll, with additional two players sitting opposite them.
And the puzzle games where designed to take advantage of this physical characteristic. For example, in MazeScroll 38, Lover's Duel, each player begins the game from their base. The two bases are at the opposite ends of the scroll. The goal of the puzzle game is for each player to get to his/her opponents base first.
In creating these MazeScroll puzzles, the artist drew inspiration from a variety of sources that include fine art and architecture. For example, MazeScroll 31, De Stijl Mile was inspired by the De Stijl art movement, particulary the paintings of Piet Mondrian. MazeScroll 35, Daedalus Treasure and MazeScroll 40, Daedalus Palace were inspired by architectural drawings. Finally, MazeScroll 45, Scritches, Scretches and Scrutches is an amalgam of Jackson Pollock, Keith Haring, and doodles.
While six MazeScroll are being offered from the outset of the campaign, the artist would like to add at least two more additional puzzles during the Kickstarter campaign. The MazeScrolls will be offered individually, or as a set of three contained in a tube package.
