How It Begins

You are an office worker visiting a nearby candy store. You are carrying your wallet, your keychain, and an Easter basket that the shopkeeper has just given you free of charge. Besides the shopkeeper behind the counter, you can also see some Easter decorations, a window display, a pay phone, a newspaper rack, an umbrella stand, a gumball machine, a chair, and a lighted display case full of candy. Your mission is to assemble an Easter basket for your 4-year-old son Max.
