I'm looking for the name of a toy that I had as a kid 25 years ago or
so.  It was like dominoes, but it was strictly for setting up rows of
the things and knocking them down.  There were no dots or numbers on
them.  They had holes punched in them and they were weighted, so that
you could set them up top-heavy.  It came with a manual that had all
kinds of ideas for setting up interesting patterns.  I want the name
of the product and the manufacturer.

Is it Domino Rally? This has been around since the '80s:

No, it's not domino rally (although that looks cool too).  It did not
have extra pieces like that.  It was more, I don't know, more adult I
guess.  Just the pieces, and they were weighted so they fell just so.
There is no answer at this time.

It has become an annual event (I believe) that is shown on European TV
and lasts a couple of hours with many pictures formed and Rube
Goldberg devices that do unexpected things.  Teams work on each phase.
