Maze Design by mleiv Maze Design by mleiv
This is the base I used for drawing my labyrinth. It is modified slightly to provide dead ends and an exit, neither of which are in your average labyrinth.

I was all "but dead-ends and getting lost are the whole point of labyrinths!" Then I remembered that Swedish uses "labyrint" for both mazes and labyrinths and felt silly.

Ha. I guess English "maze" is the unique word here, which is funny because labyrinth sounds so much more exotic to my ears. I shall have to seek out a new word to describe the Cretan-style center-terminating maze... :)

I made it through the first run :P
Did you know that if you follow one side, like right, of a labyrinth and keep to the right all the time eventually you will come out^^

I always thought labyrinths were designed to have you travel through the entirety of the maze and conclude in the middle (so it doesn't matter where you go - there is only one path; it just winds around a lot). But, as I've demonstrated with my version, people do play with the concept and by now I'm sure there are lots of variant mazes still placed under the heading "labyrinth." Like, the Henson movie version for instance.

actually, proper labyrinths do only have one path. you can't get lost, and always ends at the center. my friends and i made one once with our youth group. so you're correct.
