Game description

Toothpicks are light, toothpicks are small. Nevertheless, you can organize an excellent throwing competition with them. This can be a competition with individual or team battles. Every candidate receives one toothpick and then has to throw it as far as just possible away from the starting line. Then measure the distance from the starting line to where the toothpick came to rest.


To encourage the contestants to make more accurate throws while at the same time making the game a little bit more difficult, you could mark the field on the ground. If the toothpick lands outside the lines


Whoever manages the longest throw wins or earns a point for his team.
