Retro Jack Straws
This very old game has entertained children for a long time, originally played using lengths of straw that were gathered together then allowed to fall onto a heap and then the skill was to remove pieces of straw one at a time without any other straw moving. This version from the 1950's has the most nostalgic appeal. Its a bit like pick up sticks except you have to carefully separate the little tools using a metal pick... Suitable for any number of players age 7 years upwards.
