If you look closely you will see a ball with a string. The ball has a hole in it. The picture shows the ball on the wooden spike. There are three cups. Two toward the top and one at the bottom. The object is to swing the ball on the string so it lands on one of the cups or the spike. As you can see the cups have different sizes. The bigger the cup the easier. The spike is the hardest.

Here is a video to show how it is used.

  1. I see you can buy this from online retailers in the states. I used to have one but my string broke. It is a great toy and challenging. No batteries!!!!

    Here’s another great and challenging toy requiring no batteries too (audio is Spanish but there are English subtitles) :

    And it requires *no* training at all. Brain not included. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It will never catch on. People like to keep to old school e-books.

    You’re right. Besides, the requirement for user-supplied brain as a DLC does not play in favor of BOOK. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    From what I can tell it is low level ROM with no upgrade options.

    I thought of this video. (2:10 mark)

    Excellent. (The man’s face has a strange similarity with Adam Baldwin when he played a NSA agent in *Chuck*).

    My brother brought me one from Japan and I got really good at it.ย  I could never do the spike though.

    I could do the spike. The thing was to have up and down movement with not a lot of side movement. Maybe I should buy one and get good at it again.

    What happened to yours, MM67?
