[Martin] of the band [Wintergatan] is on his third quest to build the ultimate musical marble machine, and that means dropping marbles with maximum reliability and precision timing. Working through several iterations, and returning to first principles, he engineered a marble gate that can drop marbles with a timing standard deviation of 0 ms.
When I first read the box, I thought this was a variation on The Incredible Machine. To some extent, I am disappointed that the concept wasn't taken this far. It would have been a lot of fun to draw your own tracks and use the 30 different equipment pieces to construct puzzles. Also, bear in mind that all you do in the game is drop marbles in funnels and watch. Sometimes the marbles needs specific timing, but on the whole this is not necessary. As such, the gameplay is rather limited. 2b1af7f3a8
