A pick-up sticks game that was brought from Hungary to the USA in 1936 and was mostly called pick-up sticks. A test of focus and dexterity for 2 to 4 players. Gather the sticks with highest value to win the game. This is a nice version in hardwood box with sliding cover.

Includes: 40 sticks
Rules of Play:

  • Take all the sticks into your hand such that your fist lies on the table (palm down). Now open the hand suddenly. The sticks should fall in a somewhat circular pattern. (If they land scattered widely, throw again).
  • The object is to retrieve the sticks one at a time without causing any other sticks to move. You gain points according to the value of the sticks that you successfully remove. You can only use your fingers, unless you have already taken the single Mikado stick in which case it can be used as a helper, possibly to throw up another stick. Note that you cannot pickup the Mikado stick UNTIL you have at least 1 of each of the other types of sticks.
  • If you cause a stick to move, your turn ends and the last stick attempted is not counted. The next player re-bundles and drops the sticks again. After several rounds, normally five, the one with the highest score is the winner.
  • Rule variations to be established before commencing the game:
    • The stack could be taken over from the previous player instead of re-dropped
    • Taking sticks in the exact sequence of Kuli, Samurai, Bonzen & Mandarin doubles the points of a turn

Pick up sticks are a great retro game. Makes me think of my childhood. Love the wooden box but the sticks themselves seemed more fragile than the set I remember having as a kid. These make a great game in patience and dexterity just wish the sticks were more sturdy.
