Handgames - Now in Moving Pictures!

As promised, here is some video from the 21st Annual Yukon Stick Gambling Competition.

If you're not familiar with stick gambling (a.k.a handgames), I suggest you read the explanation at the link above and then watch the videos to see if you can follow everything that's going on (the second video is a little easier to follow than the first).


Team Kaska Nova (on the right) eventually took first place, winning $10,000.

The team from Meander River, Alberta, always puts on a good show. Here, they're just warming up.

I'm so glad you posted these videos. Photos don't come close in showing the incredible energy at these games. I remember when there were stick gambling competitions at the college sometimes during lunch, half the student body tried to fit into the student lounge to watch or participate. It was amazing!
