Wanna play Zeropoint? Part 1

Zeropoint or "yay-yay" is one of my favourite childhood games. We didn't have computers then so we spent a lot of time making up games with our friends. The good thing is that we often made up rules which would suit ourselves. The bad thing were that our opponents could make up their own rules as well!

To play zeropoint, we first need a "yay-yay" or a rubber rope. To make one, you need to collect as many rubber bands as possible. Sometimes you can buy a whole packet of them in the shops.

Once you have your rubber bands, link them together as shown in the photo.  Continue doing this untill you have a long rope. Some people make a double-stranded rubber rope. This rope usually lasts longer but is less springy.
