You wake up on bare stone, in an underground labyrinth. You have no idea how you got there, who is behind this or why this is happening. All you have is some mixed-up instructions on how to get out and a warning that wild animals have been let loose in there with you. In the distance you hear a wolf howl...

Special Rules

Escape Route

Before you start playing secretly pick ten direction cards (Left Turn, Right Turn and Straight Ahead) and this is your way out. You don't have to play these in any particular order but the first player to get the right ten cards out is the winner. If you have over ten cards, even if your ten are part of those 11+, you cannot claim victory.

Sequence

The direction cards must be kept in the order they were played. When a card played card first. Some other maze fittings can be backtracked past as well.
