A strange puzzle with moving marbles that came in two different versions.
The precise mechanic of this puzzle is unknown.
There were two different versions:
- One, named "Entrapment", shown in images 1-7.
- One, named "Magic Marble", shown in image 8.
The first year of production is unknown but Jerry Slocum acquired his sample (image 7) in 1981.
There is also a very similar version, called "American Trap", but that has four columns on both layers, instead of three as is the case here. Please refer to the seperate entry.
