"Pick-up-Sticks", also know as Jackstraws, Jerkstraws, Spillikins or Woodpile, is a popular game of skill, played by both children and adults with long round sticks or 'straws' of wood. 'Jackstraws', the game's most immediate predecessor was particularly popular during the colonial period in America. Jackstraws were originally made of ivory or bone. Later, when the game became a favorite among colonial children, they were made of wood. In the 20th century, the 'sticks'; were rounded for ease of use and Jackstraws became the game we now know as "Pick-up-Sticks".
The name "Pick-up-Sticks" comes from the children's counting rhyme, "One, two, buckle my shoe; three, four, shut the door; five, six, pick up sticks."
