Mikado is a pick-up sticks game originating in Europe. In 1936 it was brought from Hungary to
the USA and was mostly called pick-up sticks. This term is not very specific in respect to
existing stick game variations. Probably the "Mikado" name was not used because it was a
brand name of a game producer. The game got its name from the highest scoring (blue) stick
"Mikado" (Emperor of Japan). The buddhisticChien Tung also contains a stick called "emperor".
