Yesterday when The Cousins were here, I tried something out on the children.
They had really been enjoying the geoboard over the last couple of days, and I had been thinking of Maddie and her mazes, so I started playing and thinking.....
I chose one corner to start from,
and next I made a little pocket at the opposite corner for the "End".
The rest I filled in with open edges, dead ends, and general maze tracks.
This was actually really fun to do, as I had to think about the paths I was making.
It occurred to me that it's a pretty good good thinking game... it's a nice challenge to build it in the first place, and then fun for the designer to present the maze with a marble to another... with the condition that if the marble falls out of the frame at any time, the game is over.
The children gave the game a thumb's up.
That's good enough for me!
