The well-known game of sticks
Everyone knows Mikado. A bunch of coloured wooden sticks is thrown onto a table where they land in a chaotic heap and each one is then carefully removed so that none of the others are moved. You and your team can now make a Mikado of your own using big thick wooden poles.
A colourful symbol for the group
Our specialised instructor helps each member of your team to make a Mikado stick from a pre-prepared wooden pole around 2m long. The bark has to be stripped off the wooden poles which also have to be planed, sharpened at the ends, and painted too. The sticks then form a colourful game of Mikado which can symbolise the group, while the band that holds them together can represent your company. The finished game makes an ideal wooden sculpture for your company's seminar room, foyer, or office spaces.
The name and the origin of the game
"Mikado" is actually the old name for the Emperor of Japan. The game is named after the stick with the highest value, and the other sticks have names as well, such as "Mandarin", a high Chinese office, "Samurai" a Japanese warrior, or "Kuli" (a Chinese worker). The game is however known in Europe, rather than in Asia, and is said to have been played since Roman times.
