MatchBox Slide



Home / Puzzle Playground / Tricks /

The secret lies in a little bit prepared matchbox. Put inside its drawer a bended piece of thin cardboard as shown in the figure.

Before you let the matchbox go, hold both rings so that the thread is tight, and this holds the matchbox on it. Changing the tension of the thread you may easy control the matchbox on its downward way stopping it anywhere you want.
