Milton Bradley's board game Bamboozle, or the Enchanted Isle seems, at first glance, to be a simple race game for children. However, the extremetly complicated, even convoluted, rules of the game make for a much more complex game experience. Even gaming adults very likely had to consult and re-consult the rules to keep track of the game play setbacks and special conditions. A diagonally-oriented game board, with many colorful and fanciful details, adds to the game's uniqueness.
