Highlighter Maze Runners • 2017 rpg

Andrew J Lucas • no link

One player is the maze master and draws a dungeon on a sheet of paper.  Hex or grid paper is excellent for this.

Indicate start and finish.

Players take turns moving.

Moving requires a player to balance their highlighter tip down then while pushing down flick it forward.  If the pen mark hits a wall an encounter occurs.  All players whose last pen mark can draw a direct line to the interception can fight in this encounter.

Roll a D6.  This many opponents are encountered.

All players roll as many dice as they have to attack and are successful if they roll over the target.  Each success defeats an opponent.  1 die is removed from each player for surviving opponents.

Used to play this game with classmates back in the 70’s. It would look great with a couple of diagrams.
