Giant Pick Up Sticks
Promising hours of entertainment for all ages, the set features 33 blue, green, yellow, red and black sticks, each measuring in at 90cm long with a circumference of 4.5cm.
How to play
Hold the wooden sticks vertically before releasing them to create a jumbled pile on the ground, then take it in turns to pick them up. Players score points for each stick they successfully pick up with each colour assigned a different amount of points – the person with the most points wins!
There’s a catch, though. The only stick that’s allowed to move is the one being collected. So take a deep breath and – whatever you do – don’t disturb the rest of the pile.
