Four years ago, I drew a really nice maze. I have recreated it with the wonders of MS Paint for all of you to enjoy.
Just begin at the green START, exit by the red arrow, and don't pass through black lines.
Here's the gimmick: You are allowed to fold the paper. The maze is creased at four lines: Mountain folds along the orange lines, and valley folds along the blue lines.
To transform the maze, you can do one of three things:
- Mountain fold across the orange horizontal line, and then valley fold across the blue horizontal line.
- Mountain fold along the orange vertical line, and then valley fold along the blue vertical line.
- Unfold everything.
Each fold will bring an orange line to the corresponding green line, which acts as a nice guideline. Cool, right?
Although you can probably solve it by just staring at the given picture, I think it's fun if you print it. You can print this pdf:
Or, if you don't trust strangers on the internet, you can simply download the given picture and then print it.
If you do plan on printing it, here are my recommended steps for maximum folding precision:
- First, mountain fold along the horizontal orange line. Crease sharply.
- Now, take the edge of the fold, which is the orange line, and bring it up and over to overlap with the green line. Crease. You will know you've found the right alignment when the lines line up. Ignore the blue line as a guideline, it is too hard to use.
- Repeat for the vertical creases.
That's all. Have fun!
