Maker Story

A-MAZE-ing Marbles

Marble runs have enchanted kids for decades. Architect Andrew Comfort’s grandfather built a wooden marble run for him when he was young, and the seedling for a new take on an old game was planted. Years later, Andrew designed a build-your-own marble run that encourages kids to create 3-D sculptures, play with the principles of engineering and spatial configuration, and enjoy endless fun.

Q-BA-MAZE consists of translucent cubes that fit snugly together to form a marble run. The openings in the cubes differ, so you can decide as you’re building if you want a marble to exit a cube from the side or the bottom. Some cubes have openings on both sides, so you can never completely predict the path a metal marble will take to the finish.

Build a fish, a moose, a tower, or whatever your imagination can think up. The game is new each time you start building. Set Q-BA-MAZE up in your family room, and watch as adults and kids can’t resist giving it a go. It’s addictive and enriching. Andrew’s granddad would be a-MAZE-d.
