CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Immersive game board features an engaging cast of characters.
Interactive game includes talking book and mystical creatures.
Electronic Labyrinth features a movable game board composed of maze cards used to move rows to gain pathways that move players through the labyrinth. Players work to clear paths to reach the dwellers who want the players to perform certain tasks for them or bring them items in exchange for the prized gemstones that will eventually help them to free the trapped wizard. Players might also meet up with the witch, who will try to prevent them from acquiring the 15 gems they need to fill their magic key that unlocks the book where the wizard is held captive. Crucial to the game is the magic book that electronically communicates the interactions with the dwellers of the labyrinth. Players push the corresponding buttons on the book, representing either the dweller spot they landed on, or a function button to get further direction or assistance. The game offers two levels of play.
Players Test Their Memory Skills
Memory, listening and processing skills are practiced in this action-oriented, interactive family game. Players need to remember what each of the dwellers want, get it for them, and earn the needed gems to move forward to the next set of tasks and challenges. The shifting game board challenges players to think strategically as they plan their moves around the labyrinth collecting clues and gems. The random nature of the clues from the magic book encourages players to think on their feet.
Intriguing Design Engages Families
The electronic book brings the story of the wizard, the magical creatures and the witch to life for children and draws in players by incorporating them into the game. The interactive nature of Electronic Labyrinth provides a variable play pattern so no two games are alike and families can enjoy the game together time after time.
What's In The Box?
1 magic book, 1 playing board, 37 labyrinth cards, 17 object cards, 5 treasure chest cards, 4 mission scrolls, 4 playing pieces, 60 gems, 4 magic keys, and 1 set of instructions.
Listen to the magic book and find the gems to free the wizard!

After reading the instructions about five times for the Electronic Labyrinth game (and being very familiar with the rules to the original version), we were still confused about how to play. We just decided to jump in and figure it out as we went along. To say that this game differs greatly from the simplicity of the original Labyrinth game is putting it mildly. It's not just an "electronic version" of the original. First, there are SO many pieces to the game and "if that, then this" rules that the original does not have. Second, you're hardly moving the game board around like the original. It doesn't involve much thought. It's all about retrieving something and bringing it back to a character on the game board. When you do that, you collect these tiny gems/jewels that you precariously place on a card and hope you don't accidentally bump it and send them flying everywhere. Third, the instructions to use the battery-operated speaking magic book is enough to drive someone into therapy. Whereas the original Labyrinth game is fantastic for ALL ages (yes, even adults!), the Electronic Labyrinth's book and the "stories" it tells are truly suitable only for those under 10 years. We rolled our eyes each time the book spoke and felt like, as adults, we were way beyond the age limit for this game. But good luck with finding kids that can understand the convoluted instructions and not lose the many tiny pieces to this game!Read more ›

This new version has added randomness to the missions, though nice, also means the game potentially can last longer.
I'm always wary of an electronic gadget breaking. . .especially when kids are involved. Unfortunately if this one breaks, that is the core of the game.
As demonstrated in the video some of the electronic dialogue can "feel" long winded.
Need paper and pen to take notes as the Magic Book assigns a player new missions.
Quality of the game pieces is very good.
My kids love the classic and this new version feels different enough that it's not the same game to them, so they like playing it too.
The electronic version is about the same price as the classic, and well worth the $20 price.
What ruins this game are the rules, which make it far too confusing. You set up a random labyrinth, and in each turn, you have to slide a tile into the labyrinth, which moves one line of tiles. This part is straight forward enough. You then get to move your piece. You can move to a place where you pick up a free gem, to an object you can pick up in order to complete a quest, to a character who will either send you on a quest or accept the object you were previously sent on a quest to retrieve, or to a piece on the opposite side of the board from where you started where you can pick up gems. Different characters will send you to different places to retrieve different objects and will sometimes ask you to carry treasure to other characters. At any point in the game, you can only have one treasure and one object, although you might be trying to bring multiple items to multiple characters. At the same time, other players are also trying to bring other objects to other characters, or possibly the same characters. You win by collecting enough gems by either just picking them up, or completing tasks or missions. Confused yet? We were.
The strangest thing about the game is the disconnect between the cuteness of the physical game and the convoluted nature of the rules. There's a talking book that sends you on your quests. Land on the adorable unicorn, for example, and you have to click on the unicorn button on the book. The unicorn will then tell you in a children's storyteller voice what it wants you to do. This thing is so cute and reminiscent of MagiQuest, the live action role-playing game for kids.Read more ›
I was a little wary of the "magical talking book". I didn't want it to be a let down. Though it is a little cheesy, it makes the game even more fun.
The maze changes with each turn and there are quests to perform. The person who fills their key up with jewels wins! Watch out, though; the witch may take away some of your jewels during the course of the game.
There is a lot of strategy involved. The game is different each time you play. The board and jewels are pretty to look at.
Since there are several quests potentially happening at the same time, we needed to write them down in order to remember them.
The book requires AA batteries, which are not provided.
This is an excellent game that the whole family will love!
