Yesterday, my kids said to me, "Mama, make the hardest maze ever!"
Weeeell, I'm not skilled at maze making, so I compensated by making it a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure maze! Chose your start point and where you want to go, and see if you can make it there!
You can also just make it an adventure. My son started out as a pirate and took over the map, gaining the dragon for a fire source, and the chickens and tree for food sources (eggs and apples), and taking control of everything else (as any pirate would, I guess).
My daughter went and visited all the princesses and fairies, and then explored the rest of the map, saying "HI" to everyone.
It's very open ended, and it's fun to see how the kids go about playing with it!
I figured I'd already drawn it, so I might as well share it with the internet in case anyone else wants to enjoy it!
I’ve been a pirate, use to go on rants sounding like Barbosa, did a lot of uranium and mutated, gold always found with uranium, this is pirate central, loot central. Center point for cargos of loot, to be sent out to gravitational anomalies, mostly in the mountains, buried to super amplify those anomalies, in the hope of bring conductive warfare to the land, used like satellites for the hound dog hunter, heat seeking psychic warfare. The black fighting chickens are the American black dragon, hidden by the mask of a dragon as a chicken. Dragons mostly existed in dinosaur periods, have large catacombs with their favorite pets. Dragon loot is buried near the center of earth, accessible through river Styx, dragon masks all that recovered. The mask dna covers the latent dna, that if given favorable conditions may take over, form phase 7 dragons. The castle of the wicked witch of west, is underneath the forbidden fruit, on which it was to protect RIP. I stole the fruit then killed it bringing it to me, large underground castle at this location from old gold mines. The castle a fortress, ancient to guard against the satanic temple filled with demons below that. I love that game!
Since everyone seemed to like this one so much, and it was a lot of fun to draw, I thought I'd make a permaculture/homesteading version. I've got a lot of it sketched out, but I'm not quite sure what to put in the remaining space. I've got room for about 6 more things. Any ideas?
