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:
We all played pick up sticks as kids, and I was happy to find these. Though our were usually plastic, these wooden ones give a nice grownup touch to a generally childhood game. And until I read the insert, I never knew there even were rules to the game! The wooden storage box is really nice, too.
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.
I bought these for my granddaughters because they have never heard of this game. I think they will enjoy this
