Game description

The nail board is a very popular game among children. All you need is a wooden board for each participant and lots of nails. The rating can be done in different ways: a) Count how many times a kid has to hit the nail to get it into the board; b) Count how many nails can be hammered into the board at a certain time. This game could also be played in teams. Make sure the neighbours are not at home, or you might end up with complaints.


The winner is the team who got the most nails into the board. For individuals use 10-12 cm nails, for the team game 5cm nails will do. That makes it easier to get the nails into the board and alternatively it will make sure each kid gets a go.
