More Distractions

Who dreams up these things? I like these kinds of thinking games. I can't wait to see what the kids do with it.

The layout of the course changes after each successful mission. Your challenge is always to build a contraption that moves the small pink shape until it is entirely inside the "goal" (the large pink square). You have a limited number of tools with which to work, but there are seemingly infinite ways to arrange them. Some will achieve the desired result; some will not!

The design shown here doesn't quite work. Yet. It's fun to see what unexpected things happen when you click the "start" button.

Update: Here it is in action. Working! I didn't say it was elegant... ;)

We have a game called The Incredible Machine that is very similar. It's so much fun!
