AbstractThe present invention provides an electronic maze game wherein the player attempts to direct a playing piece through a maze to a goal within the maze. The goal is suitably indicated by a flashing LED on the game board. The position of the goal within the maze changes in a pseudo-random manner. In the preferred embodiment, the object of the game is to score as many goals in the shortest possible time, without passing through any forbidden zone in the maze. The forbidden zone is indicated by a flashing LED of a different color than the goal LED, and periodically changes position within the maze in a pseudo-random manner.
