I'm impressed by both [user]Dadooh[/user]'s run and [user]shalafi[/user]'s general play if this is what it's like for him all the time!
I have over 30 years of training on how to minimise the effects of stereoblindness. ^_^

Was thinking the same; I find one-eyed stuf seriously challenging, and I thought, it's probably not an excuse to mention eyesight, as [user]shalafi[/user] wears glasses most of the time! Fair play to you guys. Not gotten very far with this one yet.

I find catching in the cups rather easy. However, spiking is something completely different. I feel like the biggest klutz of all. Respect to [user]shalafi[/user] and all the others who can do this.

I got to #6 tonight. Getting better! Also, this list inspired me to record a silly trick, which I'll Instagram tomorrow.
If you don't want to buy my books, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

I find the Earth Turns specially tricky, I'm wondering if it is the same for everyone.

We love silly tricks.

Captain Cook is definitely the hardest trick in this list imo.

Just for clarification:

Captain Cook:

Captain Hook:

Both were indeed most definitely very merciless pirates and true 'baddies'. Actually, the only real difference I can see is that Captain Hook wasn't a white supremacist. At least not in the version I remember.

LOL love the clarification. For the record, there's one captain hook movie with people instead of animation.

I've got a cold. I had a brief go at this again today, but my knee wasn't happy about it, and I lost energy quickly. Like Lars, I find the Spikes/Ins hardest.

Just to keep the spirit up. I'm practicing for days now. That's how far I get ... I can do the tricks up to Around the Cosmos with a probability higher than 50%. But I can't get past Captain Hook. And I didn't show that it takes me about 50 tries to get one lighthouse into balance. Mostly I knock the base away, land on my hand or the ken falls on the tama from too high above.

Shalafi ... my highest respect

I'm the opposite of you, Lars: the first 2 are reasonably fine, but it gets much harder from there on. I had another go tonight, but didn't get past 3.

I gave it a run this afternoon (just for fun) during a work break and I got as far as Around the World (#6) in 10 minutes.

I will try again later, with proper warm up.
