Game description

For this game, you will need permanent markers or felt pens with a flat part at the top or bottom, so that they can be stacked on top of each other. However, they are not to be stuck into each other. On command, the candidates must stack 4-6 pens together for a tower. Subsequently, the tower must be standing at least for another 5 seconds.


The fastest wins. The time is measured from the moment on which the candidate puts the last pen on the top. Then hands off and see if the tower stands for 5 more seconds.
