Columbus Tojās
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A puzzle in the line of the Space Massager or the Leesho.

The images show a puzzle sold via Ebay in 2012. It was described as variant similar to the Babylon (Tower). This is misleading since the Babylon Tower works with a moving hole while this variant works with moving marbles. It looks like a bigger variant of the Space Massager. Both puzzles share not only the moving marbles but also the rails which go over the top and bottom cupolas.
There are 60 marbles in the central column, 30 red and 30 green divided into 12 columns of 5. On each end there are 22 marbles divided into two edge rows of 7 marbles each and a central row of 8 marbles.
The back of the package shows its name. It is another puzzle named Columbus Egg. To distinguish it from the other puzzle this one is named in the museum in its original hungarian form.
Length: 190 mm
Diameter: 55 mm
Weight: 200 grams
Nothing is known about production dates, origin, etc.
Since there is a cooperative mentioned on the packages back it was made during socialist times which gives an upper bound for the original year.
