The Digital era has taken over the fun we had as kids with those new and techy gadgets.Kids today will not be surely knowledgeable about these games or will only know about them through paper and screens not from first hand experience.Anyways, here are the list of games that I rarely see being played by kids of today.
– usually seen being played by the girls, the Chinese garter was their all-time school break favorite game!Chinese garter has 5 main levels starting at the ankle,knees,hips, chest and lastly the neck. You have to work your way up without tripping to win the game!
-designed to be used as a tying agent, the lastiko(rubber band) is also being played way back then. You may think these kids are insane with their fashion because of those crazy rubberband bangles, but don’t be fooled because those rubber bands are their winnings. So this means the more rubber bands you have the greater player you are! Mostly played with the game dampa
Kasing (gyro top)
-made from wood and nail, the kasing is the original beyblades. The goal of it’s typical game is to destroy your enemy’s kasing by launching from the above causing the nail to Peirce through the wood! Kasing comes in different sizes and very colorful design.
Luthang (bamboo gun)
– children ,back in the day, used to simulate gun battles by the use of luthang. Luthang is made from bamboos.Insert a bullet (seed or wet paper) at the end then poke the other end with a stick causing tremendous pressure inside which launches the bullet. You better watch out cause this toy really stings!
– I, myself, is an avid player of this game when I was a young. The goal is to flip the pogs placed at the center by throwing a single pog to it. The pogs that are flipped by your strike are now yours. Pogs used in striking are called “ayan” or “alas” (ace) this pog is carefully chosen by the player, it is sort of our lucky pog.
It is good to reminisce games we used to play for it brings relaxing and joyful memories. It is quite alarming that kids these days tend to play gadgets rather than going outside doing various fun activities. We all want the generation next to ours to have the fun we had.So why don’t we teach them the classics! It’s never to late!
