Turing Tumble is a revolutionary new game where your child can build mechanical computers powered by marbles to solve logic puzzles. It’s fun, addictive, and while you’re at it, you discover how computers work. Use ramps, crossovers, bits, interceptors, gears, and gear bits to build marble-powered computers that can generate patterns, do logic, count, add, subtract, multiply, divide, and much, much more!

To solve puzzles, players build a path of components between the marble release mechanisms at the top of the board, and the levers at the bottom of the board that activate the marble release mechanisms (each time a marble reaches the bottom of the board, another is released). If you have correctly assembled the board, then the output will match the desired condition and you have solved the puzzle. Otherwise, try something else, and think about how each piece is influencing what happens as the puzzle solution is executed.

As you move through the puzzles more complicated components are introduced, building up your problem solving toolkit and allowing you to tackle the harder and harder challenges as they are presented. There are 60 puzzles provided in the book, and potentially limitless more puzzles provided by the online community on the Turing Tumble website.

Turing Tumble is an absolute pleasure to play with. It’s both engaging to setup and ponder over, and then fun to build your solution, and very satisfying and rewarding to watch what you’ve assembled solve the puzzle and spit out the right result. A truly ingenious toy which demonstrates just how computers can do all the amazing things they do with simple 0s and 1s.
