Turing Tumble Community

Hello Turing Tumble Community!

Off the top of my head, here are some things I would like to see:

  • Randomizer: a flip gate that redirects the ball randomly
  • Column Collector: a container that collects balls in a vertical stack
  • Release Trigger: a part that can be placed anywhere on the board which triggers the release of another ball.
  • Weight trigger: a collector part that becomes a ramp after a certain number has been collected.
  • Hold and Release: a part pair where one part will hold a ball and then release it when the other part anywhere on the board receives and holds a ball.
  • Lift: a way to automatically return balls to the top of the board.

In addition to the ones I listed, how about something like an led light or a bell that is triggered when a ball moves past.

Love these ideas! Thank you for sharing.

Hi David. Is it possible to create puzzles on this site? I’m new :sweat_smile:

I have had a few ideas such as a:
Randomized bit.
Elevator back to the top.
Color changer that you load with balls and when a blue comes in a red comes out and Vic’s versa.
A ramp that allows you to move the ball left or right by 2 spaces and only go down 1 space.
Finally a opposite of a crossways that means if the ball goes in the left comes out the left and goes in the right comes out the right.

I understand if you choose not to take these suggestions after all I understand that game development is an art form but I ask you test these both in can they be made and in do they improve the game :slight_smile:

I have an idea for that but for the elevator it will need a lot of tech

Hello! Thank you for forming a community. Will there be more graphic novels? My son was asking since he saw “To be continued .”


@christinemkwan If we do another book, I am hopeful we will be able to include more of the story. At the moment we are working hard on another product that will be launching soon. The new product also has a graphic novel incorporated, but it isn’t about Alia.


@Turingman Thanks for these suggestions! We actually do have a opposite of crossways that we call a “reflector.” Check out this custom part by @JohnZ: First Custom Part - Reflector

The elevator is something lots of people have asked for. We are finishing up a design for a ball reloader that makes it easier to pick them up at the end and then dump them out on the top. Hopefully that will improve things.

The color changer and randomized bit sound like fun ones!


hi there. i just joined today and it would be nice if i could get a tutorial from a real person instead of a robot.

@TurningBoy I’d be happy to help! What questions do you have? My name is Alyssa and I’m a real person but can’t always answer every question. :slight_smile:

Hello, just got this for my daughter and she’s loving it. I’m already expecting her to be done with the puzzles in a couple days/weeks. Was looking around for a recent update and couldn’t find one. Does anyone here know the current status? Do you expect to release a followup of the book with the comic and more puzzles? When do you expect to release your new set?
Looking forward to any answers :slight_smile:

I bought this game for my son Zoltan who is 8 years old, for Christmas, and he would like to leave you this message:
" Hello,
I am very very strong even without the solutions I can manage to solve the puzzles. I love the Turing Tumble game all the time."

Hello, David. I am new to Turing Tumble. I have been using it as an enrichment activity during some extra time with my 9th grade Honors Geometry course. I have recently been approved to offer Turing Tumble combined into a new elective course to be introduced next school year. I really appreciate the Educator Guide for Challenges 1-30. Will there soon be any expanded notes offered beyond Challenge 30? I really appreciate your time and effort. Thank you!

Yes, I do agree with that! Love to have the educator guide for puzzle 31 to 60 :grinning:.
Is it on the agenda of TT?

Our son was wondering the samething. Any update on another story??
