What do you mean, this is amuses me more than the kid that received this gift for Christmas?

(Actually this amuses them a lot, but only when they get to destroy everything I’ve built with a mischievous laughter while yelling "I won!")

This toy’s manual looks like a strategy guide for some cryptic video game level. I love it.

@ice oh haha wow, is that kind of like a rube goldberg machine kit?

@cblgh Yeah, kind of, it’s made of two sets of wooden tiles with a few different accessories, like ramps, small platforms, stairs, wheels, marbles, and other stuff I don’t even know how to name (and which I forgot to include here.) There’s a few suggested layouts but you can set it up in any way you want. It takes ages to build and everything can crash within a few seconds, that’s Sisyphean entertainment at its best :)
