Jack Straws game

Jack Straw game
   Jack Straws is a familiar parlor game. It is played with straws or with strips of bamboo, wood, ivory, bone, or the like. The straws are tumbled in a confused heap on a table. The players take turns. The first withdraws straws, one at a time, as long as he can do so without joggling the heap or moving any other straw. The right to play then passes to the next. The player who has the most straws at the conclusion of the game wins.
   The pieces may be withdrawn with the finger or angled for with a hook provided for the purpose.
