The Magic Labyrinth (also known as The Magic Maze) is a traversal puzzle game where magician apprentices retrieve magic objects from their master's maze. However, there are invisible walls in the maze that you have to avoid. The walls are setup under the board, along with a magnetic ball under your figure. If you move the wrong way the ball hits the wall and you lose the treasure.

Each turn you roll the dice and moves that number of squares in an effort to get to the treasure token. But if you hit a wall and the ball falls off you have to go back to the start ready for your next turn. If you get to the treasure you collect it and draw another one to place on the board.

As the game progresses players need to remember where the walls are - by seeing where others lost their ball bearing. In this way they build a picture of the maze and accumulate treasure. Get five symbols to win.
