I always thought Four Balls was a good fun level, but I saw Robzone's Spanker and it made me lol.

Good job robzone

yeah Robzone and nickoolo are both posting pretty interesting contraptions.

I like Robzone's solution to around the bend: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=392
I actually never solved it myself. I just figured it was doable and probably "around level 11 hard".

Yeah, "The Spanker" is great. I've got a bit of a weird affinity for my own solution to that puzzle, too. Anybody else created a machine that they are especially fond of?

Sweet. There are so many rods I can't tell how it works, but it does.. somehow!

I second Heloed. That _must_ have been luck to get it to catch like that on the third time around. Right? Can that be reproduced?

Jaysus. Nice work folks. I thought my ball masher was elegant until I saw yours...

Wow, I'm amazed at some of the ones here, mine isn't really inventive, but here goes:

Punchers Chance turned out to be a pretty novel approach. Its one of my favorite designs that I've come up with myself (most of my newer designs are tweaked knockoffs in search of solutions with less pieces).
A version of it currently holds the record for fewest pieces to solve, though this original version works a lot faster with the extra piece left in.

I really dig puncher's choice. Simple, effective, and imaginative.

You have to love how that stick both rolls the balls up to the target zone and drives the puncher as well.

This isn't as simple as Puncher's Chance, but it's up there. It also does the job fairly expediently.

Here's my solution. Whittled down from my original behemoth of wheels and rods.

I always loved playing with the four balls... especially using things not seen (to often) before.

This is one of my favorite solutions I have come up with.
