TIME TO SWITCH GEARS

You’ve struggled through the alien citadel. Sure, it was dormant, but the security systems are still active. Finally, you are in the control room. If you can activate the citadel’s main power system, the universe will experience something really cool that will make everyone like you. But… there are no controls. Finally, you see it: a floating, geared ball. You reach for it, twisting and turning as the gears and colors shift. And then, voila. The colors align and the citadel wakes. And so do you, dang it. But at least you really have a Gear Ball Puzzle Sphere?

Each Gear Ball Puzzle Sphere is just about what the name sounds like. Turn the ball to get the colors aligned (or messed up) and joy to the smooth movement of the gears. Heck, we don’t even want to solve it most of the time we pick it up; we just like the feel and the sound of the gears. It’s meditative. You won’t be able to awaken any alien bases with your Gear Ball Puzzle Sphere (at least, we can’t guarantee it), but everyone will like you if you have one (also, not guaranteed, but highly likely).
