okay, I give up..

REALLY I was hoping someone else would ask/explain

but how the heck does the marble end up under different "cups"????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????/

I think there is actually a marble in each cup, a little lever mechanism inside each arm to either hold or release the marble. If you watch carefully, the arm that has the marble show up moves very slightly to the side before lifting.

my gosh, you are clever...I have always and forever been hopeless at this sort of thing...

I do much appreciate the info...

I will now get quite a kick out of showing others and seeing if they can figure it out.
