This is a game that in childhood was often played at grandma's house. This very old game has entertained children for a long time. Originally played using lengths of straw that were gathered together and then allowed to fall onto a heap, then the skill was to remove pieces of the straw one at a time without any other straw moving!
The game has developed over the years, but the version from the 1950's perhaps has the most nostalgic appeal of all of them. Enjoy it and have fun!
