A wire loop game is a game which involves guiding a metal loop along a serpentine length of wire without actually touching the loop to the wire. The loop and wire are connected to a power source in such a way that, if they touch, they form a closed electric circuit. The circuit includes a light- or sound-emitting device of some form, which indicates that the game has been lost.

Step 1: Things You Need
- Scrap piece of wooden block & some sticks
- Stiff copper wire or any conducting stiff wire will do the work
Step 2: Make Two Chiselled Slots for the Wooden Stick
Step 3: Insert the Sticks and Use Your Mallet
Step 4: Connect the Stiff Wires Across the Wooden Sticks With Any Pattern
Step 5: Make a Loop
Step 6: Circuit (Important : See the Note Added to the Circuit)
Step 7: Clean the Copper Clad Board With IPA and Draw the Circuit With Permanent Marker
Or Use a laser print out and transfer the toner. Find the circuit wizard file to get the layout
Step 8: Dissolve the Etchant in Water. (HINT : Stronger the Solution Quicker the Etching Process)
Step 9: Let the Board Take Bath to Get Rid of Exposed Copper
Step 10: After Getting Rid of Exposed Copper. Give a Water Bath to the Board
Step 11: Wipe Off the Traces of Permanent Marker Using IPA
Step 12: Hold the Etched Board Against the Light to Find the Traces of Copper
Step 13: Mark N Drill Holes
Step 14: Fix the Components in Octopus. Check the Link for Build Instructions -->> Octopus
Step 15: Tin the Tip
Step 16: Apply Flux
Step 17: Solder
Step 18: Cut the Excess
Step 19: Remove the Excess Flux With IPA or It Will Corrode the Circuit
Step 20: Connect the Buzzer, Wire & Loop to the PCB and Solder / Secure the PCB With Hot Glue
Step 21: Insulate the End Points
Step 22: That's It. How to Play??
Start from one end without touching the wire reach the other end. If buzzer rings you've failed the task. Press the reset button and start over. Most important -->> Don't cheat like Mr.Bean that's why I never included the switch. Enjoy and test your hands.
