Ramses' Richochet Maze

Great, you've come just in time to help me. Moo-Cow invited me to his beach party, but I lost my “beach cape” somewhere along the way. Will you be a pal and help me find it? I think it's just on the other side of this maze, but to get to it we can only move in a straight line until we come to a wall. When we get to a wall we can go in any open direction except diagonally. Okay, lets go!

 

Try using your cursor as a playing piece that you move through the
maze. It makes it easier to figure out where you are going. Or use the
printer link at the bottom to print the game out and play it with a pen.

Thanks for finding my cape! But, I just remembered that I told Moo-Cow I would bring ten coconuts for a dish he’s making. Can you help me collect the ten coconuts in this maze before we exit out the other side? It’s okay if we have to backtrack to get all of the coconuts, as long as we get them all before we leave. The rules are the same as before

Y
ou might know this ancient Chinese game as Tangrams, but around here I like to call it Ramgrams. This version of Ramgrams is dedicated to some of my most awesome dance moves! I bet you didn't know I was such a good dancer, did you? Well, try and keep up by recreating my moves as a Ramgram. To make Ramgrams, cut out the individual shapes that form the square below (seven shapes in all) and fit them together to create the silhouette of my move. Don't overlap any of the pieces and make sure you use them all for each silhouette. See the example above to get an idea of how the pieces can fit together.

Ramses' Awesome Animal Arranger

This is a creature F.W. and I made up using the R.A.A.A.. F.W. says it looks just like a friend of his from Australia!

 

 

 

Have you ever noticed that most of Australia 's animals look like someone just decided to be silly one day and make up a bunch of creatures that seem unbelievable and ridiculous (look at F.W.)?

I figured if someone got to have all that fun putting pouches on everything, making a bear that wasn’t a bear, and assembling the platypus from spare parts, then we should get to have that kind of fun too! That’s why I’ve invented Ramses’ Awesome Animal Arranger! It’s a simple device to help you and your friends populate your neighborhood with as many oddities as the Outback, and it’s simple to use.

R.A.A.A. Rules

1. The frst person takes the template and, hidden from everyone else’s view, draws any kind of crazy head in the top space (make sure you continue the neck lines a little into the next space).

2. Then fold that section back along the dotted line and hand the paper to the next person. That person, without seeing the head, draws a chest and arms for the creature and folds it back.

3. You continue this until all the sections are filled in and then you unfold it to see what crazy creature you have created!

Click on the template to get a printable version. Or you can just use a regulare piece of paper seperated into four sections.
