Street games or race games are one of the components of a Filipino's childhood. It is here that we first cultivate our relationships, learning to think and make decisions that we know will be good for us. Over time many of today's children no longer know the games we used to play because of the use of technology.
EXAMPLES OF STREET GAMES
It is played by two teams with the same number of members. The number of members is in accordance with the drawings to be observed within the rectangle. The most agile is the patúto guard (middle). The duty of the bets is not to let anyone in the opposing team enter the rectangle. The hand is used to bet or block the opponent. Deception and agility are important here. The “attacker” must be able to enter undetected from the first line, pass the division lines, exit the last line of the rectangle, re -enter and return to the source to win. When someone is tied to the "attacker", the "attacker" group takes the place.
In this game, there must be an empty can, usually an empty milk can, which will serve as the target of the players. Each player also needs to be holding checkers which are usually slippers. In preparation for the game, the can will be placed, 6-8 meters away from the line where the players will be stationed. Players line up in line and holding their checkers they will one by one try to knock out the standing can. The next player cannot throw a checker until the first player has knocked down the can.
This includes one bet and two or more players. The bet will serve as the "cow" that players have to pass. As the game lasts, the stance straightens the bet. It must also not be touched by players or any part of its body. The one who can't jump or the one who touches the "cow" except with the hand will be at stake. And the game will return to the beginning. This game is carried out in a wide area without any obstruction.
Although a few people can join, all you need to do is specify a "bet". Whoever determines the bet will count to 30 while closed and leaning against the tree that serves as the home base. As the bet counts, the playmates are looking for him to hide. After counting the bets he will look for those who hid. Everyone who hides will find a way to get to the home base without being seen by the bet and will shout "save". Anyone who gets here without getting caught will be saved from betting. The game will only end when all players have been exposed to hiding.
Many young people today are often found to have “gadgets” in their possession and lose time to socialize or play with other children outside the home. It is important for today's children to be able to show and play the pinoy games we have played because they can bring many good effects that we carry into old age. Our way of life is becoming modernized but that does not mean we have to change our habits.
Have a nice day my dear read cash friends and to dear #rusty. Missing you!
