Game description

All you need for this game is a bag of nuts. The objective is to stack these nuts to a high tower without it falling over. Before the game even starts, work out how the nuts are to be stacked: upright or flat on top of one another. The 2. version is easier.


Variation 1: With the help of a thin stick, the nuts have to be stacked vertically; therefore, the nuts themselves are not to be touched with the fingers.
Variation 2: All nuts are all lined up on a chopstick. Now, one by one, holding the chopstick at a slight angle, trying to put one nut on top of the other nut, without the tower falling over. How many nuts can you stack?
