I played a fun skill game called Stick Stack (Wonder Forge / Gather Round). This balancing game is kind of like Jenga but with flat sticks. You try to get all the sticks on the stand and you have to get the stick on before it falls and you need to make it stand up. But there is even more: As you add sticks to the stack you have to have matching color sticks touch each other. Just when you think you’ve got it, it can all fall down!

Stick Stack was fun and challenging. I would think kids to adults will like this.
