I think it’s surprisingly difficult. Note that this is a real game, but there is usually alcohol consumption. Also, hammer selection can sometimes make this very trickyhttps://t.co/71MAqPuiZv

They drank, didn’t they? I’m just going to guess because there have been way too many duds 😂

See the thing is…if you’ve done this before…you start with gentle swings to get the nail into the surface. Once you’ve gone down about an inch (depending on the length of the nail), you can start rocking on it. Unless you’re super good at it. (They are not.)
