Don't kill me for posting this but as an electrician that plays games I had to do it.

It is a flash based game that you play in your web browser called Electric-Box . You have to get the electricity to reach the target using light bulbs, magnets, solar panels, etc. If you don't like it at least let your kids have a crack at it.

I played it till level 10 - I need to get back to finishing my paperwork!

I would rather beg for forgiveness then beg for permission.

Being the goober that I am, I finished the whole thing.

Took a couple of days though...

I got to lvl 12 before I got to frustrated and gave up. Resorted to cheats after that. Trying to do lvl 15 without any help but I might break down if I don't get it in a few days.

If you give up and feel the need to know how it is done.....try searching youtube.

I got to level 14 and couldn't get the current to the last leg. Finally went to bed. I will be back, and I will beat it.

As kinetic told you already:

For anybody who is really giving up and looking for help:
go to "youtube" and enter "electric box"

It seemed too environmentally whacked out for me. I thought outside the electric box, fired up my non-PC, and put in a single nuke plant. Now, I'm powering up everything on all the levels and storing my spent fuel rods in the basements of foreclosed houses.

I had a hard time getting used to the nuke symbol being the 'load'.
What's wrong with using something a light bulb?

This whole game would be a lot easier if they gave us a roll of wire instead of all the politically correct stuff.
