Laser Maze Logic Game: Pew-zle

by Lambert Varias

Thanks to one of my friends’ addiction to board games – we call him the chairman of the board now – I’ve rediscovered how fun they can be. While the best board games often pit you against your buddies – Game of Thrones, Cosmic Encounter, King of Tokyo – there are also a handful of awesome cooperative games, such as the infuriating Pandemic.  Here’s one that you can play with kids and adults alike, a logic game called Laser Maze.

Made by Thinkfun, Laser Maze is about guiding a laser beam through a series of mirrors and obstacles until they hit a specified target. The game has 60 levels – arranged from beginner to expert – depicted by cards. The cards show the initial setup of the board for that level. It also tells you which piece to play to complete the maze, but obviously it won’t tell you where to place it. If you really can’t figure out how to solve a level, check the reverse side of the level card for the solution.

Depending on your tastes, Thinkfun’s commercial may have made you think that Laser Maze is actually more dangerous or more awesome than you expected. The truth is the laser is very weak and is barely visible under normal lighting conditions. Skip to around 2:40 in the video below by Dad Does to see what the laser looks like in real life.

You can buy Laser Maze from Amazon for $29 (USD). It may seem to have a low replay value, but Amazon reviewers love the game and say that the more advanced levels are actually very tricky.
