Guess how many pieces Catastropha has Answered

Ok, some of you may have noticed my ball machine Catastropha. If you haven't then take a look at it! :D

Well, the point is: I'm making a contest, just guess how many pieces it uses. Every person can only guess once, dead line is Friday next week, even if I'm not finished counting pieces then. Oh, and a number can only be guessed once, otherwise just the first post wins.
First place will receive a patch and a three-mounth pro-membership.
Second and third place will receive a patch.

And yes, the pics attached ARE Catastropha xD

Hey! Why does that smiley have a nose? :P

See, noses are evil and smiles without noses are a lot better! :)

hey! that's evil! Smileys WITHOUT noses RULE!!!!!!!!! :P:P:P

no, i'm not voldemort. I don't even act like him. I convinvce people that smileys without noses are better without violence.

He has a nose! It is very flat, but he still has a nose!

yeah, of cource it is xD
But it is about who gets most close.

You see my other comment here thats my REAL geuss.

I gues 27,478 pieces.

Congrats sathothy on winning the pro membership :)

Thanks! Congrats on winning a patch to you :-)

IT'S OVER 9000!!!!!!! oh yeah and I'm guessin 19,978

with or without balls?

without, but that would just make a difference from 78 pieces :P

I'll guess 29999, cause it's less than 30000, no one will beat that for a long time.


I'll go with 36,000.

when did you first get knex? and what set? I got it in first grade, downhill thrill luge set

My first set was the 30 model building set.

A long time ago. Probably when I was about 6. I think it was the big ball factory.

OVER 9000!

Why, why, this is....

(keep current on your old memes)


Hey sorunome! Ive built a few ball machines prior to my discovery of instructables, and im going with 30,500


6 years ago

I guess the same amount of pieces Cataclysm used - 28,538

I'll hedge my bets and go with 40,000.
