I'm stuck on it right now. I'll let you know if I get any further...


Got it. Had to think differently. Up until now, my contraptions looked very similar.

Here's a cleaned-up version of the same approach: a little less brutal :-)

I can't get any of the links to work for four balls. Thanks, though.
I don't even want to tell you how much time I've spent trying. Pretty sad.
Three's as good as it gets for tonight; I'm done!

It took me forever to finally get this one to work, and it does kinda take a bit to leverage in there, but I assure you it does work.

I could ALMOST get a different design to crawl over the ball but couldn't get it to tip over the other side of the ball. It would only keep falling backwards so I figured I had to get a way to get under it. The next one is almost more aggravating so far.

Yeah, you know what was funny about it was that I built it all nice and sturdy and the balls would just sit there spinning in it, so making it more rickety was the key, because it would change the amount of force exerted on the balls. The other extremely annoying part is that I kept managing to get 3 balls in, then try an extremely minor change and then get no balls, back and forth like this.
