Official Gravity Maze Rules

"ThinkFun Gravity Maze" is a logic game that combines a marble run with a series of increasingly challenging puzzles. The objective is to create a path for the marble to travel from the start position to the target tower. Here's how to play:

Components:

  • Game Grid: The base where towers are placed.

  • Towers: Colorful, translucent towers of varying heights and configurations.

  • Marbles: Small balls that roll through the maze.

  • Challenge Cards: Cards with different puzzle setups, ranging from beginner to expert levels.

  • Target Tower: The designated end point for the marble.

  • Instructions: For setting up and playing the game.

Objective:

The goal is to build a maze using the provided towers so that when the marble is dropped, it travels through the maze and lands in the target tower.

Setup:

  1. Choose a Challenge Card:

    • Select a challenge card based on the desired difficulty level.

    • Each card shows the initial setup and the required towers to complete the maze.

  2. Set Up the Game Grid:

    • Place the towers on the game grid as indicated by the challenge card.

    • Position the target tower as shown on the card.

Gameplay:

  1. Placing Towers:

    • Use the towers shown on the challenge card to create a path from the start position to the target tower.

    • Towers can be rotated and placed in any orientation, as long as the marble can travel through them.

    • Only use the towers specified by the challenge card.

  2. Dropping the Marble:

    • Once the maze is built, drop the marble from the indicated start position.

    • Watch the marble travel through the maze.

  3. Solving the Puzzle:

    • If the marble successfully reaches the target tower, the puzzle is solved.

    • If the marble does not reach the target tower, adjust the towers and try again.

Winning the Game:

  • The game is won by successfully guiding the marble through the maze to the target tower for each challenge card.

Strategy Tips:

  1. Analyze the Path: Before placing towers, visualize the path the marble needs to take.

  2. Experiment: Try different tower orientations and positions to find the solution.

  3. Progressive Learning: Start with beginner challenges to understand the mechanics before moving on to expert levels.
