Thinking outside the box

Real title is "Think outside the box"

I made this a year or so ago, when I had just picked up Flash.
I learned this game from my scholar's bowl group, and I took on the task of flashgameifying it because it's one of those things I've been wanting to do. I urge you not to toss your monitor out the window, and if you do know how this works, don't tell ;) it's more fun to watch people rack their brains, especially when you play this for real. (Like it says, it's more fun if you get a bunch of people with you around the computer)
