Block Pick Up Sticks

Set of 49 wooden sticks with a wooden block stand.

Once the classic game of patience is won, take a mindful moment to re-model Block Design's sculptural wooden sticks and stand.

The beautifully designed object sits elegantly on display until it’s time for a rematch.

Enjoy creating different patterns with the colored sticks, inspired by an iconic modernist palette.

Their Pick Up Sticks create a beautiful modern­ist sculpture when placed in their stand. But if you do fancy a game beforehand, here are the rules ... 

1. Hold all the sticks vertically then drop them so that they land in a random pile.
2. Each player then tries to remove one stick from the pile without disturbing any of the others. The different colour sticks each have a different value - see below for our points system!
3. The player keeps picking up sticks until they disturb any others apart from the one they are aiming for. Then it's onto the next player.
4. Once all the sticks have been picked up add up the scores. The player with the most points wins!
