Minute to Win It Wiki

Blueprint Description[]

The citizens of Pisa learned the danger of building a tower on unstable ground. In this challenge, the contestant must construct a miniature tower of nuts on a similarly unsteady foundation: a cutting board held on their hand. Sliding nuts of the chopstick, one at a time, they must build an unprecedented ten-story stack to win a towering half-million dollars.

Game Description[]

Using a chopstick in one hand, stack 10 large metal nuts on a wooden cutting board resting on other hand and forearm.


This is a level 9 challenge.

Household Items:[]

  • 10 metal nuts, 5/8"
  • Wooden cutting board(round recommended)
  • 1 chopstick
