The third event of Marble League 2017 was held on 8th July 2017. The event was Fidget Spinner Collision.
This event is remembered for Momomomo's horrific injury, where Wispy and Momomomo collided very hard, causing a piece of Momomomo to break off. After this the Midnight Wisps paid a large portion of Momomomo's hospital bill to make amends with them.
Fidget Spinner Collision is very similar to the Collision event from Marble League 2016, but with added fidget spinner obstacles. Similarly to last year, two teams of four marbles roll towards each other from the opposite ends of the arena. However, with the addition of fidget spinners in each corner, teams must deploy other strategies in order to win. The 16 teams are divided into 4 groups, where the best 2 teams will advance to the quarter finals.
