About

Thanks for checking out The Maze & The Race: Dual Deluxe Edition. You may ask why two games in one? The Maze has already been released as a base game and expansion, I wanted to combine them together since not many people got the expansion and I think it makes it a more fun experience. So I combined them together in one box trying to cut the cost, but hadn't released it yet in that form.

The Race was later released on Kickstarter but couldn't find it's audience. The Race has a similar game mechanic to The Maze, it was birthed from that game if you will. Sort of a spiritual successor. I wanted people to play it so I decided since they have similar mechanics they would be a great fit together. I could also make them all cheaper by putting them together in one box. These games and expansions normally retailed for over $55 together. Now they are coming to you at a much lower price by putting them together.

The Maze and The Race are both designed for families and especially families with younger children. Both games work great for children as young as 5. They are great filler games as well to play between larger games. Both games are played simultaneously by all players, so there is never a dull moment. If you're sick of games like Candyland and Life, then these games are right for you. They teach younger gamers deeper game mechanics and promote creativity as well. 

In the distant future, the biggest entertainment event on the planet is The Maze. The Maze is an ever changing labyrinth where up to 6 contestants compete for fame and riches. Each maze is made completely differently than the other. Contestants have to try and navigate to the finish and claim their victory. You are one of those contestants. Will you become the victor and claim your spoils or be lost and forgotten in the ever changing labyrinth of The Maze?

The Maze is a fun, fast paced game where you create a new maze each time you play. Once The Maze is created you and up to 5 other friends try to escape The Maze, but there can be only one victor. Everyone takes their turns together using a fun dice mechanic, so no one is waiting for their turn to come around again. Your roles on the dice determine how The Maze changes each turn.

Each game of The Maze uses a little bit of luck and a little bit of strategy. You can create a large maze using all of The Maze cards or just a few to create a smaller maze. The newly incorporated Teleportal expansion adds a new teleporting mechanic to the game, which allows you to make islands in The Maze for even more maze possibilities.

The Race is a fast paced drag racing game where each player tries to get to the finish line first! Pick a color, take the matching components and roll the dice. With a little luck you might become the ultimate racing champ!

The Race features a fun dice mechanic where everyone rolls their dice at the same time and compares results to determine how their race cars move along the track. It's a great family or filler game that can be played by nearly all ages. For shorter or longer games all you have to do is change the track length, so it's modular as well! See if you will become the ultimate racing champ!

Learn how to play both games.

Since both games are in one box, all the necessary components are included and some are used for both games to save on cost. 

Indie Tabletop recently reviewed this version of the game. Here is an excerpt.

"They’re definitely a quick and easy duo to process and play. They don’t carry to many components and the rules are very straightforward. It’s accessible to any age or gamer experience type and can most likely be enjoyed for a few playthroughs. The amount of tiles in The Maze make the uniqueness endless as the board could be setup any way you could imagine. The teleportal expansion definitely did the base game a huge favor because of the sand box style setup it has. The Race is a bit too simple for my liking, but my nephew seemed to love it (he’s 8 by the way, I talk about him a lot). But, I think what I did enjoy. Was pitting humans against racers (because I wanted to be green, and there are no green cars)." Click here for the full review

Father Geek has previously reviewed The Maze (without the Teleportal expansion included) Here is an excerpt.

"The game frequently served as a filler and was for a long time “the game” of choice for my Child Geeks before bedtime. Why so much popularity and interest? According to one Child Geek, “I really like how the game keeps shifting and changing.” Another Child Geek explained, “The best part of the game is not only figuring out how to get to the center, but to also get the other players lost!” Which is not to say that a player can get lost, but they can certainly be put in a situation where it’s difficult to get to where they want to go. When all the games were over, the Child Geeks enthusiastically agreed to approve the game. " Click here for the full review

Risks and challenges

There are virtually no risks in this project. Everything is print ready. I will be using a US manufacturer who will also distribute for me as well. Once I have the funds in hand I can pay the manufacturer and they will begin production. They have a quick turn around time and games should be shipped out within 1-2 months of campaign completion.
