A great dexterity game, Climbing Maze involves carefully moving a ball up the side of a wall full of holes, trying to avoid the holes in order to reach the destination.
The ball lies within the aesthetic wooden block which in turn is suspended from two strings hanging from the corners of the game. By gently pulling the balls at the ends of each string the ball is manoeuvred around the holes and through the maze.
This version of the game is a table-top game designed for domestic use - great fun for children and families at home. It has several paths inscribed on the surface as suggestions for challenges you can take on but you can extend the difficulty in any way you want.
To make the game more interesting and add another level of suspense, make it a time trial or put a time limit that gradually decreases each turn!
