Do you ever struggle to find a willing volunteer in your group to perform arduous or unpleasant tasks e.g. taking out the garbage, washing the dishes, saving the princess from the clutches of a ruthless villain?

Short Straw brings to life on the iPhone the cliche, "drawing the short straw". It's so easy to play - straw tips appear at the bottom of the screen, each person in the group has to touch and drag up a straw, and the person with the shortest straw is the one who must do the task.

You could also utilise Short Straw for other games of probability: simulate the tossing of a coin using two straws, or use 6 straws to mimic a six shooter in a tense game of Russian Roulette, but without the nasty consequences.


* Pick up to 6 straws

* A bright selection of straw colours

* Choose from a range of lively backgrounds

* Cool animation effects
