Late last year, I stumbled upon what was being touted as the world’s largest maze. The creation of Joe Wos, the maze measures in at 35 feet long and 4 feet wide. Armed with paper and a black Sharpie, Wos has intimidated even the best of the best puzzle solvers with his maze, if only because of its sheer size.
But can this newly unearthed maze compete with Wos’ creation – in terms of complexity, if not size?
Japanese twitter user, @Kya7y, has introduced what could be in the running for the world’s most intricate maze.
According to a blog entry at Spoon & Tamago, the brains behind the maze is @Kya7y’s dad, who worked on the project for seven years. Seven frakking years. And he completed it almost 30 years ago. Some of you weren’t even born then!
We don’t know if he used a Sharpie, but we do know that the maze is drawn on a sheet of A1 paper (that’s about 33 inches by 23 inches). Imagine all the details that can be crammed into that space!
So how did the world’s most intricate maze (possibly) see the light?
Apparently, upon discovering the maze, @Kya7y was not sure what to do with it, so she sought help on Twitter. (Of course, what else is there to do?)
Not surprisingly, the Twitterverse got excited about the whole thing, with everyone asking for copies. I wonder if anyone has completed the maze, yet, though? Want to give it a shot?
