I see that mazes are popular ;-)


In the first picture, is that a labyrinth table or a maze table?

And what's the goal of the Q-BA-MAZE 2.0? Build an incredible maze, get trapped and never get out? :lol:


Also good to see that Carrera is still there; brings back good memories from my childhood. I loved to race my Carrera cars.

It is not too often you get to see Pac Man walking down an escalator when it isn't Halloween!

Also, there was this interesting mechanism, but I am not sure
how the inventor of it can transform it into a puzzle.

PS. We enjoyed a lot that marble track... we were throwing marbles
from far away towards the top, and it ALWAYS ended inside one of the tracks! LOL :lol:

Wow, hopefully that new Dr. Nim is available soon. It's got to be one of the most clever minimalistic computer programs ever!

I picked up a copy of that one at the HKTGF in January. It's about 1/2 the size of the original. As you said, it is a nice game to play. Made by popular playthings. I show it in a video of the toys I picked up in January on my YouTube channel.

The answer already exists at my website with a hidden message.

It means whatever you want it to mean - just make sure it means something to somebody. :)
