Let’s dive into the gameplay!


Game Highlights


We have a contraption in place to make our toast – but first, we will start by understanding and solving a math expression! Once we input the correct values, the contraption will use magic marbles to wake up the mouse that starts running on the wheel and triggers the boat.  A carnivore plant will help catch the marbles. The final result will be our toast!



Time to do the dishes after a delicious breakfast! Solve the math expression and input the correct values to start the Rube Goldberg machine. The machine will use the magic marbles to trigger the boxing globe and blow up the balloon that carries the marbles to the final destination: the sink.
