A net for a polyhedron is a spanning tree of the graph in which vertices are faces of the polyhedron and the relation means that faces have a common edge. A maze is another spanning tree on the same graph, which implies that there is a unique path between any two points of the graph.


We have a maze on a polyhedron net. Thick lines represent walls. The initial positions of players are given. Use setter bars to select the initial positions on the graph. The first player draws squares on a turn, and the second draws circles. A player can draw a new character on a face if it is adjacent to the last one drawn and is empty. The player who cannot make a legal move loses the game.
