Introduction: Simple Lego Maze: Make and Play

This maze may be constructed using a variety of bricks, plates, tiles, slopes, and one sphere object. The numbers listed below are the parts I used to construct the maze.

Bricks to cover outside parameter and maze

2 - Corner bricks

12 - 1x12 brick

2 - 1x6 brick

5 - 1x4 brick

1 - 1x3 brick

7 - 1x2 brick

1 - 1x1 brick

Tiles to cover pathway

20 - 2x2 Tile

17 - 2x4 Tile

3 - 2x3 Tile

8 - 1x4 TIle

4 - 1x3 Tile

7 - 1x2 Tile

Tiles to mark start and finish

2 - 1x1 Tile

2 - 1x1 Round Tile

Plate for base

1 - 16x32 Plate

Plates for holding obstacles

2 - 2x2 plate

3 - 2x2 jumper plate

Parts for obstacles

2 - 1x2 x ⅔ slope 30

2 - 2x1 slope, curved

Object for maze

1 - ball or sphere

Step 1: Start the Maze

Start with the baseplate - this is a Sawaruita baseplate (16x32) available from Amazon.

Step 2: Create the Maze

Create a perimeter using bricks that are 1 in height.

Leave an opening on each long side of 2 studs.

Create an inside rectangle using bricks that are 1 in height.

Leave an opening on each long side of 2 studs.

Create two long sides inside the rectangle. Tip: in all instances leave a 2 stud width pathway between bricks.

Use bricks 1 in height to close all openings so that there is only one pathway through the maze.

Step 3: Create the Pathway

Use the tile parts to create a smooth pathway.

Insert two 2x2 plates for obstacles. Place the slope 30s back to back on one plate. Place the curved slopes in parallel on the second plate.

Insert three 2x2 jumper plates for additional obstacles.

If you are using a open sphere lego part - you can attach it to the stud on one of the jumper plates for storage.

Step 4: Play the Maze Game

Place two 1x1 tiles on top of the bricks by the opening on the near side to mark the starting location.

Place two 1x1 round tiles on top of the bricks by the opening on the far side to mark the ending location.

Move the baseplate to manipulate the sphere through the maze.

Tip: You may also time yourself as an additional challenge.
