We were recently sent the Brio Labyrinth Game to review. It’s been a while since H had any new Brio toys – there was a whole Brio era when he was younger and into wooden train tracks and the like. In fact, I hadn’t realised that Brio had anything in their range for older children (or indeed in the case of this game adults). This game has been very addictive since it arrived. I have been struggling to get past the third hole for ages and H was too and then he suddenly pushed ahead and made it to the 6th hole. I am going to have to seriously up my game or I will be badly outclassed. I think this one is going to run and run.
It’s a game of skill as you carefully balance the ball and try to manoeuvre it without it falling down any of the many holes. There are two knobs on the sides: one for to till the board in one direction and the other a different one. With the game come two small metal marbles to move around and they are returned to you when you fail. It’s a very addictive game. You can play the Brio Labyrinth game on your own or with a number of players and take in turns to see who can make it the furthest around the board. It requires perseverance, control and a bit of luck.
