In the box: 8 chop sticks, 4 towers, 16 discs
Concentration, a steady hand, and the coordinated use of both hands/arms will be necessary to succeed with this game. To play, use two chop sticks to pick up a disc and place it on top of the tower. With practice, and steadying my arms against my body for stability, I learned to pick up the disc. Raising the disc to the tower, which required moving my arms away from my body, was my next challenge. If you place the tower close, and move your whole body forward instead of moving your arms away from your body, it's easier, but somehow feels like cheating. LOL. Not for the easily frustrated. May take many practice trials to move just one. Pieces are all wooden, brightly colored, and painted.
- Place the chop sticks flat against the table to pick up. They have to be kept straight and parallel to each other. If the tips come to a point, the disc will just slide down.
- Start by placing the discs on the table top and picking them up and moving them off to the side. Attempt the tower after you can successfully transfer the discs.
