The Maze Explorers
Arctic World

Find your way out of an arctic maze using your wits, fishing pole and a limited supply of fish.

You and your fellow intrepid explorers are off to explore an arctic maze. Using only your wits, a fishing pole and a limited supply of fish you must create and navigate a maze path to find the way out. You will encounter twists and turns, polar bears and ice. You may even find yourself stranded on an ice floe, but you can be the hero of the group by being the first one to expose the maze path and find the exit!

Your goal is to create a complete, unbroken maze path between the Maze Entrance and the Maze Exit and be the first Explorer to exit the maze. However, be careful not to get stranded in the maze without fish to eat and to keep the polar bears away!


Exploring The Maze

Your maze exploration starts by shuffling all the maze tiles facedown and placing them on the table in front of you, being sure to connect at least one edge of each tile to another. You will then roll one or two dice to move over the tiles, turn them faceup, rotate them, and uncover the maze before you run out of your limited supply of fish.

Along the way you will search for the hidden exit while also encountering various artifacts. Some artifacts, like the fishing holes, will help you to continue your explorations, others, like the polar bear, are not so helpful!


This is a fun, easy-to-learn game that’s different each time you play. Winning this game will require you to adapt your strategy at various stages in the game.
