As you can see above, our entry into the contest was a set of giant dueling mazes.
We took the idea of a table top marble maze and expanded that to be much larger. Each team races to finish the maze first. That alone was actually really fun, but we also wanted to add a way for the teams to interact with each other. To do this, we put in a trap system. There are magnets that activate to trap the ball for a few seconds and gates that can force your ball into a more difficult path. These are all controlled by your opponent.
The game is very fun to play. We were all amazed by the end that we managed not only to pull it off, but to make it actually enjoyable! I’ll be writing up a detailed post on how to construct these with tons of pictures, but for now, GO VOTE!
