Going beyond ‘ten in a row’ at the cup-and-ball game

Ok. This one is a silly challenge I had in mind for quite some time. The rules are simple. Take the most simple, straightforward, seemingly meaningless game ever created – the French bilboquet – and do ten in a row.


Well, this story is pretty short. I used to play this game a little bit when I was a kid.  But I never did more than eight or so in a row. So I wanted to see if I could break the limit of ten in a row (don’t ask why).

In just two 5-minute sessions, the challenge was completed (hurray! I can now move on with my life).

This was a bit weird but I was out of my shower and feeling inspired after reading about ‘living in the present moment’ from the book Become what you are. I tried to keep what I had just learnt in mind while trying this silly challenge one more time – and tadaa! – fifteen in a row:

Good-bye, Mr. Bibloquet! I’m done with you… until the next challenge!
