At one end of the chair was a crossbow which pointed at Li. Brendon had to solve a bunch of Rubik cubes and use them to add weight to a scale, to prevent the bow from releasing and piercing into Li’s head. If Brendon handled the weighing scale wrong or was too slow with solving the Rubik cubes, then Li would get shot with the crossbow.
