All I remember is that the board consists of loose tiles and you slide one into the board so that you can advance and this pushes another tile out for the next person to do the same. The box art was some kind of troll that looks like the monster from Where the Wild Things Are. If it makes a difference this was a German game. Any ideas?

Sounds kinda like Labyrinth. Although the box art doesn't really have a troll on it. Perhaps a different version with different art?

If you'd tell us when your childhood was, it would narrow things down. I was thinking Labyrinth or The Magic Labyrinth, but neither of those feature a troll on the cover.

Well I was 11 or 12 years old so around 1998 I can't pinpoint it and my sister is younger so she really doesn't remember. Everything was in German so it's probably Labyrinth like you said I just don't know what version.

Try this link to see box photos. There have been many designs of The Amazing Labyrinth, so maybe one will look familiar.

It sounds like it's almost certainly Labyrinth - it's got a Wild Things-looking troll in there somewhere, even if they vary between editions.

Thanks everyone! I'll continue my search now that I'm sure it was Labyrinth. If I ever do find the exact one I'll post a pic.

May I venture to guess that the troll was the little guy below the 'Z' on this picture?
