Nest of matches
The nest of matches is a coordination game for two players or more.
Each playing group needs:
- one bottle (made of glass, or a similar firm object with a bottleneck on top)
- matches or toothpicks (of rectangular shape; round toothpicks tend to roll away)
Two players (or teams) compete each other. One team after the other may put one match on top of the bottle. This slowly creates a nest of matches on top of the bottle. All players have to take care no match falls down. Unlike Mikado, it does not matter whether the matches move or not; you only have to avoid to let them fall off the bottle.
Any team that causes at least one match to fall down lose the game (or earns a negative point). Then, another round is started.
