The Circuit Maze Game is packaged in simple shrink-wrapping. Once that is removed, the lid of the box is easily opened revealing a game board, a pack of cards, and several small pieces made of metal and plastic. There is a start and end piece connected by a wire, and the main piece needs 3 AAA batteries to get started.
The point of the Circuit Maze Board Game is to use logic and electricity to solve the puzzle. The cards included offer challenges ranging in difficulty levels from beginner to expert. The back of the cards show the solution if you get stumped. There are several pieces including switch pieces and pieces with multiple directions to direct the electric current. Some of the pieces have lights along the top that illuminate when the electric current completes the circuit. The best part of the set is the instruction booklet, which offers a lot of guidance and education about electricity and electric currents. It was helpful in learning how to use the electric current to win the game using the smallest number of pieces required.
I really liked the cards and the instruction manual. I learned a lot about creating electric circuits and I really liked that the cards not only had varying levels of difficulty but also offered solutions on the back in case I got stumped.
I didn’t find anything to dislike about the Circuit game. I really liked the concept, the level of difficulty, and the quality of the pieces.
The Circuit Maze Board Game is recommended for players over 8. I think that this is largely due to the level of difficulty involved. I don’t think this game has an age “limit” however, as I still found it challenging and entertaining as an adult.
I really enjoyed my play experience with the Circuit Maze Board Game. The price was more than reasonable for the quality of the game and it offers a lot of playtime and value. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase again for myself and my family.
