Space Maze is a fast-paced, ever-changing board game of tactics, speed and irritating your friends.
In the game each player represents an alien species. The goal is to steal an ancient relic from a massive structure floating in space (i.e the centre of the board). The Relic is, in fact, a silver hat that the alien pawns get to 'wear' when they capture it.
The game board is made up of a maze of primary-coloured doorways (red, blue and yellow), two doorways touching each other make a combination of colours that can (or not if the two colours are the same) form a secondary colour. The alien pawns are painted in these secondary colours, each player has three aliens: 1 green, 1 orange and 1 purple. Aliens can only pass through doorways that form their secondary colour. For example: a red door next to a blue door can only be passed through by a purple alien.
While moving through the maze the players will continually have to change the maze to get the right colour combinations. And while everybody is getting closer together, players will start to be in each other's way, eventually changing the maze in ways that wil infuriate the other players. Especially when you prevent them from grabbing the Relic!
This is a game where you plan ahead for a perfect round, just to see it all being completely overthrown by the move your opponent is making (providing all other players with some cheap laughs).
And in case you think this is the sort of game that goes on for ever, there is an alternative winning rule: a player wins when they have taken (and lost) the Relic up to three times.
