Our Mini-Marco followed the route of the real Marco by getting pushed out of his comfortable merchant-home in Venice by the arrival of the Polo brothers, his uncle and father, when he was only 17. They desired to return to Asia, specifically China, however, China was quite always away; Being pushed out of his shell, Marco began his journey and reached his destination. In China, he met the great lord of Marbles, Kublai Khan, and they prospered as favored merchants of him. When they wanted to cross the perilous Ruler Bridge, however, the Lord of Marbles had a request: he would give them Men to help bring a Mongolian princess, a lovely Duchess of Blue Marbles who was to marry a prince in Venice.
And so the perilous journey began, crossing the Rope Bridge. The men who traveled with them lost their lives, trying to put Marco and the duchess into motion. The journey was tough, however Marco and the duchess prevailed across the Dominic Peaks and reached Venice, delivering coin and cash to their relatives.

4. The falling of the car (green) causes the sun to rise and the garage door to open.
5. Car (yellow) comes down a ramp from the garage and knocks a cup of the table.
6. The cup is attached to a pulley which pulls a popsicle stick out of a funnel (red) which releases a marble through the funnel.
