All players balance a pen on both hands with their index and small fingers. Make sure that they all use a similar pen.
When everyone has managed to balance a pen on each hand, the game starts.
The task is to knock the pens off of other people’s hands while keeping your own pens balanced. As soon as a pen falls down, the player puts that hand on their back or when both pens have been knocked off, the player is out and leaves the game.
The last person with a pen on their hand has won.
