This beautifully designed game doubles as an elegant modernist inspired sculpture, the set consists of 49 wooden sticks with a wooden block stand, by Block Design

This game is designed to test your steady hand and your patience. The aim of the game is as follows:  

  1. Hold all the sticks vertically then drop them so that they land in a random pile.
  2. Each player then tries to remove one stick from the pile without disturbing any of the others. The different colour sticks each have a different value.
  3. The player keeps picking up sticks until they disturb any others apart from the one they are aiming for. Then it's onto the next player.
  4. Once all the sticks have been picked up add up the scores. The player with the most points wins.
