MazeScroll Series, Inventing a New Game Genre
The new series by the artist Maciek Jozefowicz reinvents the pen and paper puzzle game genre. MazeScrolls are pen and paper maze puzzle dice games for multiple players. MazeScrolls are a combination of puzzle games and art and interactive art.
What makes these puzzles different and unique is a combination of qualities taken from board games and pen and paper puzzles.MazeScrolls offer multiple players the intimacy and tactile experience of the pen and paper puzzle. They are multi-player games that are more than games. They are interactive art that is created by players as they play the games.
There are eight different MazeScrolls in the series. Each one uses different graphics and offers different play possibilities. All eight are original creations by the artist who has been developing theMazeScroll series since 2011 when he took a leftover roll of art paper and made his first hand-drawn maze puzzle in the form of a scroll.
Jozefowicz has made over 45 MazeScrolls since then, exploring different graphic styles, different lengths of scroll and different ways of playing. Of the 45, the artist chose 8 that represent his various experimentations. The eight MazeScrolls that make the MazeScroll Series are the following: (1) A Galaxy Far, Faar, Faaar Away, (2)Perimeter Perplexity, (3) De Stijl Mile, (4) Daedalus Treasure, (5)Lover's Duel, (6) Daedalus Palace, (7) Crossing and (8) Skritches, Skretches and Skrutches.
