Games like Cat's Cradle used to be passed down through generations of school-children, and now you can learn to play, too!
Kids are notorious for playing with the smallest pieces of whatever they can find--boxes, sticks, and even pieces of string are the classic basics from generations of children.
String, you say?
Why, yes, string! A simple piece of string is a dexterity-challenging puzzle! And it's not just for solo-play, either.
Wait, more than one person can play with a piece of string?
Why, yes, getting your friends involved in such classics as Cat's Cradle just adds to the challenge!
First, create the complex shape with the circle of string. Next, have your friend remove the string from your hands all the while turning the shape into a distinctly different shape! Pass it back and forth, changing the shape each time! As you get better, try to transfer the string with speed!
