Panjat pinang requires chopping down a tall nut-tree and affixing a large circular wheel to one end. Prizes are then hung up from this wheel, including foods, drinks, clothing, electronics, and other useful items or small appliances, such as a ricecooker. Often the prizes are wrapped or bagged so that they remain a mystery, but of course this also means people usually try to grab the biggest one. To combat this sometimes the game is played with pieces of paper hung from this circle, each containing a number. In between rounds teams open their paper and the number inside corresponds to a particular prize.
