A challenging grenade Answered

I have a challenge for you! This could be considered either a game or a grenade, but either way, it is NOT easy to make, no matter how simple it may look. The object of the game is to keep adding connectors on top of each other inside a small rubber band until you either can't add any more, or it explodes. How you do this is up to you, but be warned, this is also a grenade. It is subject to blowing up at any time, and this warning should not be taken lightly. The materials you need are a bunch of yellow connectors and a small rubber band that will wrap loosely around one yellow connector. You can figure out the rest from there, it is a game, after all. I got up to ten for this topic, then took pictures and a video before it exploded +P There are rules, though. You may not use any special tools to wrap the band around, you may only use your hands and possibly a tabletop. And because of You's comment, it has to be in a line... And please, be careful! How many can you get? 5? 10? 20? Tell me!

I win. The first one is 14, the second is 30. The last pic is of the band I used, showing that it fits loosely around the half circle. I used only my hands and a table, the first was stable enough to be moved, but the second was not =(. Oh well.

Hey, you didn't say it had to be in a line!

Woohoo!
You.

Yes, wrap loosely around a half circle is the limit.

Too loose. It must wrap around and touch every side of the connector.

here's some good news, I am working on a new magazine-fed machine gun that is looking very promising. And it fires knex rods that are horizontal, not vertical like oodalump's.

I thought that one operated like oodalump's. It fires them vertically?
