Game description

Those three ropes or strings are hung up on top of each other. On the bottom rope, you put 10 bent nails. The objective now is to take the hook bar and put the first nail on the middle rope and then on the top rope. Needless to say, you are not allowed to use your hands. This task has to be completed by standing about 120 cm away from the ropes. The hook bar, ideally, has a length of 100 cm.


For every nail, you receive one point. The points double with every rope level. The winner is, who could get all his nails to the top rope. There might be more than one winners. Children definitely will need some skills to complete this task.
