Pick-Up Game

Players of all ages will be eager to try their hands at this beautiful, bedeviling dexterity game. The brightly colored rods can be used for a traditional game of pick-up sticks, but here's the twist: slide them through the wooden ring, spread them out with in a spiral, and now the bundle can stand upright. Players take turns pulling sticks from the ring, each trying to not be the one to make the structure collapse. When not in use, the swirled sticks can remain on display as an eye-catching, sculptural art piece. Sticks are made from durable, FSC-certified hornbeam wood, and the ring made from beechwood. Made in Italy.

        i am displaying these items on a table converted from an old sewing machine stand. a very nice accent piece. love the color combinations of both. they stand well once you get them arranged--they are sturdy. i am glad they are as long as they are as that way it makes an impact on the display.

        This colorful classic game is fun for the whole family, but it also looks nice in your family room. Check out the product story to see how these sticks do double duty as home decor, then let us know if you think they're a great pick.

        It's similar to the old Pick up Sticks game. Played it often when I was a young girl. Pick up sticks was basically a bit more challanging, but this also looks fun.

        I don't enjoy games like this one; but again, many other people do.

        Pick-up-sticks is always a fun game and I like that it looks pretty enough to be left on a table.

        Pompous knock-off of "Pick-Up Sticks" and probably priced for bored yuppies.

        nice "twist" on the classic game. I remember playing pick up sticks with my Oma when we were little. She would have liked this version.

        I had pick-up-sticks when I was kid, and never got tired of playing with them, either alone or against an opponent. A simple game, but one you can take anywhere. Three cheers as well for the FSC-certified wood used.

        For a real recycled experience I could use Pick Up Sticks and a curtain circle. Don't see the appeal to this.
