Move the marbles from one column to the next by tilting and turning. Try to get each column a single colour.

Move the marbles from one column to the next by tilting and turning. Try to get each column a single colour. Once you figure out how to move one marble at a time it is not difficult.

Monroe's Marbles has twenty-eight marbles in four colors and four acrylic tubes. An opaque square tube connects the vertical tubes allowing the marbles to be transferred from one tube to another. If you look closely, you'll see that the acrylic tubes aren't exactly vertical, but more like with a subtle inclination angle, which makes it easier to get the marbles out of them. The goal is to get seven marbles in each of the four tubes so that they show a specific pattern, e.g., same color marbles for each tube.

The puzzle is sold with four differently colored bodies: Blue, Red, Green and Yellow but a buyer can order an individual selection of colors for the opaque tube's two halves and the base.
