It’s fall, y’all, and what’s better than cozying up at home with the kids and a fun board game on a cold, rainy day? We just got a new board game and we love it: Ravensburger 3D Labyrinth!
Just like in the classic and other versions of Labyrinth, the goal of this game is to be the first to collect all of your treasures by moving walls and open passages of a Labyrinth, and to foil and block your opponents. Better get your thinking hat on!
Assembling and setting up the game for the first time is pretty easy and something that our kids enjoyed.
The game comes with a game board, 17 towers of different heights, 4 cool wizards, 4 rune cards, 12 treasure cards, and 24 magic cards.
There are 9 fix towers on the game board, that stay in place the entire time. 16 movable towers are randomly placed on the empty spaces of the board to create a unique labyrinth. There’s one spare tower that will be used to push the towers during the game.
Each player receives a wizard playing piece, a rune stone card, treasure cards, and a spell card.
The home of each wizard is in one of the corners of the board.
In the middle of the game board is the Rune Stone, that each player needs to visit one time during the game. The rune stone card indicates whether a player has visited the Rune Stone or not.
The treasure cards show the treasures each player has to find and are placed face-down in a pile in front of each player. Players may only look at the top card.
The spell cards allow players to move up and down towers with multiple levels.
Playing the Game
Goal: The player, who’s first to collect all his/her treasures, to complete the run to the Rune Stone, and to return to his/her home, wins the game.
Each player secretly looks at the top treasure card of their pile, finds the treasure on the game board, and figures out the fastest way to get there (or get home, if they’ve found all their treasures), keeping the following in mind:
- Before you move, you must use the spare tower to push one row of towers. Towers may not be pushed back into the same place they came from.
- You cannot move through walls.
- You may only move to towers that are the same or one level higher/lower than the tower you’re moving from, unless you have a spell card (see 4.)
- You may use your up/down spell cards to move up and down any number of levels. You can use as many spell cards as you want. You get a new spell card every time you don’t reach your treasure or visit the Rune Stone another time.
- You don’t have to move, but you do have to push the towers.
- You must visit the Rune Stone at least once before returning to your home.
We love the game and it was easy to understand for our 7- and 10- year olds.
We’ve played the game so many times and since the playing board constantly changes, no two games are ever the same!
It is definitely a thinking game. The more you play the game, the smarter your moves become. While your goal is to find your treasures, you should strategically move and place the towers to make it more difficult for the other players to reach their destination.
The game takes about 30 minutes, so not too long and not too short.
We’d definitely recommend this game.
