A Close Shave

In this game players benefit from having a steady hand, patience, and a good dose of luck. To begin, firmly pack a cup with flour, the longer and narrower the cup, the more difficult the game will be. Turn the cup upside down on a clean plate (that is, if you plan to reuse the flour). Place a button on top of the “flour tower” and let the competition begin. One by one, players use a butter knife to slice away portions of flour. The one who makes the fateful cut that sends the button flying is the loser, and he or she gets to pack the cup for the next round.
