Begleri is a small skill toy from Greece. It is fantastic because with materials you have lying around, or with about $5 and a trip to the hardware store, you can make one.


There is long game and short game. If you have a long game begleri, you can tie a figure eight knot between the ends and get pretty close to a short game length.


A popular and simple version is to use a hex nut. 550 Paracord is 4mm wide, so a #8 or #10 inner width[5] is good.
