Meet Andy Geremia, the inventor of ‘Maze Racers’
GHMMF: Tell me what your project/exhibit is about.
AG: I designed a game called ‘Maze Racers’. It consists of two magnetic white boards and a bunch of foam magnetic walls. You and your opponent each build your own complex marble maze. Make it tricky because once you’re done you swap mazes, drop a ball in, and race to complete the maze.
GHMMF: What inspired you to start working on your project?
AG: As a kid I loved mazes, so I came up with a game that lets you build and race your own maze.
GHMMF: What do you hope to do with your project in the future?
AG: My hope was to get the game licensed and manufactured. FoxMind Games is now producing the game and it is in many toy stores and Barnes & Noble.
GHMMF: What inspired you to start making?
AG: I’ve been making and creating all my life, from sand castles to pumpkin carvings to remodeling. It’s just in me.
GHMMF: Is there anything you would like to share about your project or yourself?
AG: The Maze Racers concept started out with gluing cut up straws into two ‘trays’ made from cereal boxes. I created a website, www.CerealBoxMaze.com, documenting the process, how the game came to be and how I pursued toy companies to get the game licensed and manufactured.
