In brief: To twist a pen held between fingers.
Introduction: I was first introduced to this trick by a friend, but I could not remember how to do it until Karl showed it to me at his workshop.
Prop(s): Anything that is slim and of middle length (about 15cm) – a pen, ice-cream stick, chopstick, etc.
How to play:
- Clasp a pen along the arc between the thumb and index fingers for both hands.
- Follow the steps (see pictures – below) to demonstrate how to twist a marker/pen around.
- Ask everyone to give it a try.
