Labyrinth is a strategy board game featuring a 7 × 7 ever changing square board and 4 players each with a colored character. The objective of the game is to find (Land on) all of the items shown on one's cards and then get back to their starting circle.
Players take turns by using the extra piece not included in the labyrinth, and pushing it into the labyrinth by one of the yellow arrows (But not the one that it just came out of), and then moving their character to any tile accessible to their character via paths.
At the start of the game, all movable labyrinth tiles are distributed randomly throughout the board, and there should be one left over, which the first player would get to push into the labyrinth. Then, each player must put their character on their colored circle in one of the corners of the board, and 6 cards are dealt out to each player in a stack. The stack could be just 6 stacked directly on top of each other, in which case each player would only be able to look at one at a time, 3 on top of 3, in which case each player would be able to look at 3 to start with, 2 above 2 above 2, in which case each player would be able to look at 2 to start with, or even something like 1 above 2 above 3 or 3 above 1 above 2.
Overall strategy in Labyrinth involves:
- Pushing pieces into the labyrinth in a way that help one's self while also helping opponents as little as possible
- If you cannot push the piece into the labyrinth in a way that helps yourself, to attempt to hinder your opponent by guessing what they are going for
- Identifying patterns in opponents' movement during game play that give clues as to the item they are trying to get
- If you cannot push the piece into the labyrinth in a way that helps yourself, to bluff as to where you are heading, as to trick your opponents into helping you.
