Magic Maze by Sit Down Games

Availability: In stock

After being stripped of all their possessions, a mage, a warrior, an elf and a dwarf are forced to rob the local Magic Maze shopping mall for all the equipment necessary for their next adventure. They’ve got a plan, but can they pull it off?

They map out the mall labyrinth first, find each of their favorite stores, and then locate the exit. In order to evade the surveillance of the guards, all four will need to pull off their heists quickly and simultaneously, then dash to the exit.

How to Play:

Magic Maze is a real-time, cooperative game. Each player can control any hero in order to make that hero perform a very specific action, to which the other players do not have access: Move north, explore a new area, ride an escalator or more. All this requires rigorous cooperation between the players in order to succeed at moving the heroes prudently.

You have only three minutes in which to take actions. Hourglass spaces you encounter along the way give you more time. If the sand timer ever completely runs out, all players lose the game: Your loitering has aroused suspicion, and the mall security guards nab you!

You are allowed to communicate only for short periods during the game; the rest of the time, you must play without giving any visual or audio cues to each other. If all of the heroes succeed in leaving the shopping mall in the limited time allotted for the game, each having stolen a very specific item, then everyone wins together.
