Jack Straws is the traditional retro game that has kept us amused for so many years. It's simple (that doesn't mean easy!) Just pile up the tools in the middle of the table then take turns to hook one out, easy? Nope! Make sure none of the others move whilst you're doing it! Physical skill & mental agility help, not to mention steady hands.
Each Jack Straws object is worth points so you are left with a dilemma, go for easy points and score low or, I know, you've got your eye on that tricky to extract but high scoring piece in there? Good luck! Just so you know, it's not your turn any more if you move any other pieces, even by a millimetre!
Age: Well it says from 8, you'll know if you can trust them with a (plastic) pick-axe!
