  • Players are divided into teams
  • Every team has to build their spaghetti tower
  • Build a tower that can support 1kg of weight on its top
  • Equipments to be used:
    • Spaghetti
    • Marshmallows
    • String
    • Duct tape (only for locking the bridgehead)
  • The tallest bridge that can support the weight wins

We wish you joy and fun in your office!
