This puzzle requires dexterity and patience and is likely to drive the player crazy. The objective of the novelty is to separate the blue glass tubes within the bottle into one chambler while corraling the red tubes into the other. There is no device to attract the blue tubes to one compartment; nor any to hold the red tubes in the other.For puzzles like these, the title of "Time Waster" or "Frustration Station" seems apt.
