Make a new hole in the cover of the box , big enough for the light bulb . Now push the light bulb inside and paste the light bulb socket with tape so the light bulb will stay in place.

How to play the game: it's very easy . Just get the "lazo" from one side to the other , without touching the wire . When you touch the wire , the bulb will light and you lose.It's easy and it's fun when you have nothing to do .
