Finished!

My initial Project is finished and now time for a public appearance!

This maze can be played many different ways. Notice there are two steal bearings inside.

1. Traditional both bearings need to make it from one end to the next.

2. Each ball must make it to either end to completed the game.

3.Each ball must make it to either end, but if a ball makes it to the wrong end then you loose.

4. Each ball must make it to either end, but if they touch while in route the you loose.

Truly fascinating. How long did it take you to design it?

Hard to say I have been working on improving the design off and on for… 15 years.

I think this is the best improvement yet!

These are definitely eye catchers and maybe even a wonderful game.
