Game description

To begin with, put up 16 glasses in in 4x4 rows. Then put a table tennis ball on a bottle neck. The objective is to blow the ping pong ball off the top of the bottle so that it lands in one of the 16 glasses. The trick is that every glass has a different numeral value. Every child gets 10 attempts and all the points he scores is added up.


The candidate has a total of 16 tennis balls available; half of them are white, the other half is yellow. If the candidate succeeds to fill one row of glasses with the same coloured balls, he will score 3x as many points. If he succeeds with 4 of the same coloured balls in a square, he will score 2x as much. It is important that there is never more than one ball in each glass.


The highest score wins.
