It's also a game produced variously by Mattel, or Ideal, or Milton Bradley. I had one as a child, lo these many years ago.

Basically it was an upright plastic cylinder about a foot high. The middle 3" were perforated with small holes through which you would feed plastic sticks, forming a woven nest of colored sticks. Then through the open top you poured about 30 marbles, which came to rest on the sticks.

Players took turns removing sticks one at a time. Any marbles which fell to the bottom of the cylinder rolled out, and counted against you. The player with the fewest marbles after all had dropped was the winner.

I may still have the game, somewhere ... though I suspect that I lost my marbles long ago.
