Game description

One does not have to be Uri Geller to bend nails. You can play that with thin nails or with the help of pliers. In preparation for this game have a washing line hanging across the room. The group is divided into two teams. The objective is to bend 10 nails as quickly as just possible and hang them on the washing line. Needless to say, that is not all that easy. You will need a little bit of strength. Who can’t do it with his own efforts may use pliers.


The winner is the team; whose nails are all still hanging at the end. With other words, nails, which fall down from the washing line do not count. If a nail falls down, you can hang it up again, or you come up with your own rules on what to do with those nails dropped to the floor.
