Maze Puzzle

Mazes have always held a sense of mystery. They can be found in children's coloring books, in a field of crops, or as intriguing winding pathways through a garden.

What exactly is a maze? According to the Thorndike Barnhart Dictionary a maze is a network of paths through which it is difficult to find one's way. We look at them as a puzzle to solve in order to reach a final goal.

There are two forms of mazes: unicursal and multicursal. Unicursal mazes have no blind alleys so they are not much of a problem to solve. Multicursal mazes have blind alleys and branches which makes it much more challenging to reach the goal.
