Game description

It might surprise you, but you can make beautiful jewellery from nails. However, it is more than questionable if this kind of jewellery will make it to the latest fashion trend. The objective is for all candidates to bend the nails in a way so that they can be linked together and that as fast as possible. Therefore, it is important that you provide the kids with nails that are easy to bend. In no case use steel nails. – That will not work and only disappoint the kids. Simple thin nails are the best. Most people have them at home, or you can get them fairly cheap if you buy them in bulk. It never hurts to have a mail-stash at home. Every nail receives a point. Be careful that no one gets hurt.


The winner is the team which can show off the longest nail chain at the end. Whether you play in teams or one against the other, is up to you to decide.
