Despicable Me 3 Labyrinth is a challenging maze game with a combination of paths and hidden DM 3 characters for players to find a way to reach their target characters to win the game.
This is not the first time we played Labyrinth and we occasionally still play the Labyrinth Junior with our children and friends. This is a tunnel shifting maze game that requires skill and care to shift the tiles to reach the characters. The game is suitable for two to four players and for ages seven plus. Inside the box, it comes with:
- 1 game board
- 34 square maze tiles
- 24 character cards
- 4 playing pieces (White, Yellow, Orange and Blue)
The game board and materials are made with a matt finish. The cardboard used is suitably thick and should last for a long time. Setting up the game is very straightforward by placing all the maze tiles onto the empty spaces of the game board to form a random maze of paths. Divide the character cards evenly among the players and place the playing pieces on their own colour corners. Now the player will use the unused maze tiles to move the paths around.
Placing the maze cards down on the game board is very easy but to slide them whilst playing can be a bit cumbersome. You have to be careful to hold the board down before you slide the maze cards around and also to ensure the cards are aligned otherwise it won’t slide very easily. We often have to help Ms C to slide her cards along.
The object of the game is to uncover all of your own character cards (6 cards each if you are playing with four people) and return your playing piece to its starting position on the board. The rules of this game is slightly different from the Labyrinth Junior. I do find these rules slightly more fun than the Labyrinth Junior as you have to return to your position to win the game.
We all love this game. It is challenging and engaging. There is also a strategy element to the game as you plot your route through the maze. This is a great game with a fun concept and I am sure a lot of children would love it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and for DM 3 fans. I am sure you will find your favourite characters on the game board.
