    This is probably one - if not the worst side activity I have ever seen in a video game. Stapling stones? Really? I've sat an hour trying patiently to solve one, but it's impossible. The stones don't have any fitting surface, the controls are tricky, physics aren't correct and the bar you have to reach is ridiculously high! This is supposed to be a fun activity, so I recommend lowering the bar you have to reach to complete it. If someone wants to build a higher tower, fine. But don't expect everyone to have the patience to staple 5-6 stones with different rough surfaces onto each other.

    try to intercalate horizontal and vertical stones. much more stable construction. and only 2 or 3 locations are actually hard. it's ok. i thought it was enjoyable because I actually had to pay attention to it and when I finally managed to finish I was very happy.

    I did a few of them but quit mainly because some were time consuming and I didn't have a 360 degree view. Also the stones just drop. You should be able to lower them down. If you could circle around the stack it would make things easier for placement. I use my PC keyboard to play the game.

    I completed all stapling stones. Some of them were quite hard but I enjoyed them. Keep calm, do not think about completing it within a time limit, observe the shapes and surfaces of the stones and you can do it. Usually, the largest stone goes to the bottom, but if it does not have a smooth flat horizontal surface, then go for the second largest stone. Then, if the stones have sloped surfaces, use them to compensate for each other and get a horizontal top for the next stone above.

    None of them are impossible. One of them I managed to stack up real high and man that was so satisfying.

    Nah, I like the challenge so should you. I had to work on one of them for like 20 minutes.

    @ChuckKatse You can put them down slowly. At least with a controller.

    Completed them all and yes the tougher ones were a real challenge.

    Setting them down gently, rotating for best fit took patience.

    @chuckkatse You CAN place them gently, rotate them, etc.. Everything is there using a game pad. Try all buttons to figure out what you are missing.

    @devinite Physics are NOT correct, but close. Somethings in life are difficult. Point of the mini-game, takes time and patience, which gets repeated EVERY time in dialog for some obnoxious reason at each standing stone.

    Coincidentally, I have a couple large standing stones in my own yard, built up couple weeks before playing this and used 200-300 pound limestone boulders as the base, followed up by a bunch of other rocks stacked on them, essentially in impossible order. So can confirm 100% game physics are not entirely correct and would be easier to stack them in real life than the game has you believe. Did notice, game reuses some of the larger stones, with angle-cut ends. Have to practice, but they CAN be placed.

    @bushwickedly

    Rotating is no problem it is lowering them down. Using a PC keyboard I have not been able to find the key that allows the lowering down of the stones. If I could find that I would go back to doing the stones. Trust me dropping them down does not work and knocks the stones off the stack.

    @chuckkatse It works for the easy ones. I did it like that first. But later you will have to stack higher. So if they haven't added the support to lower the stones on Keyboard I would consider this a bug/missing feature.
