Study Break

It's reading break right now (hence the two new posts), and I've been studying all day.  The following was my first study break.   I got the idea while playing with (nephew!) Joel out west actually.


The base is made of 6 sets of 3, then 5, 4, 4, 3, 3, 2, 2, 1.  I used up every piece of a double 12 Domino set to make this.

I was surprised at how stable it was.  It took a solid bump to the table before it finally fell over!

... definitely time to get back to the books.  :)

Did you make sure that each level had the same number of dots?

Perhaps you should make it again making sure that numbers match each other at each intersection. Or maybe tape Greek letters to them and put them together so that each level spells a word. By so doing, you can intersect your math and your greek skills... Curt

:) Have YOU ever built a Dominos tower that big? I bet you're just jealous! Or, building one as we speak. :)

I will show this to Joel... he'll be excited. He made another one of his own just yesterday, not quite so magnificent though. Looks like you missed your calling :)

Wow, that's quite the flood too. Thanks for posting!
