This unique variation of the three-in-a-row challenge is based on visual memory. Each player has a delightfully quirky set of nine Silly Stix characters of graduated heights. There is also a set of nine tall blocks with holes of undeterminable depth arranged in a 3x3 formation. Players take turns dropping their Silly Stix rods into the blocks. If the head of their Silly Stix is exactly level with the top of the block, the rod is correctly placed and stays in that block. Otherwise it is removed and that player's turn is over. The goal of the game is to correctly place one's own Stix so they form a row of three level heads in tic-tac-toe formation. It's trial and error all the way, unless players can recall which blocks rejected which rods.
