This is a fun puzzle that is pretty easy to build. The goal is to have all the pins line up in a horizontal manner. The pins are different lengths and the holes in the base are of varying depths. In addition, there is a slant to the base which adds another level of deception.

That’s really neat.
Do you mind if I use the idea??

Doesn’t plug in, doesn’t need batteries, and all it takes to work is a brain….it will never go over. But I love it.

Thanks. I’ve thought of multiple variations to build. As I’m sure you figured out, eight pieces is an arbitrary number. I think it would be cool to do a grid of 4×4 (16 pins in total). If you make something, please post it here and I will link it to the posting on instructables.
