Game description

This is a funny quiz game which you can play to kill some spare time. Each child receives 3 toothpicks. Now, every child has to decide for themselves how many toothpicks make it to the other hand. To do so, both hands are hidden behind the back. All kids are singing: “1-2-3-None.” Now each child has to stretch their fist forward to hide the toothpick in their hands. As soon as all hands are stretch out to the middle, the kids can start guessing how many toothpicks there are in total. Is it 30, 20 or none? The one, getting closest to the correct answer wins.


The winner is the child who at the end has not toothpicks left. If there are a lot of kids playing, that can take quite some time.
