20 years back we spent our summer and winter holidays playing games that would physically exhaust us and inculcate skills like team management, strategy building, meeting the deadline and develop our sportsman spirit. There would never be a deficiency of the Vitamin Sun! Addiction towards mobiles and televisions today has handicapped all the kids. Here are some of the most amazing games we played in our childhood and we MUST get our kids to play them too!

KHO – KHO

Kho Kho is played in 2 teams and a match consists of 2 innings. An inning consists of chasing and running turns. The objective is to tag all the opponents in the shortest time possible; the quickest team wins. Members have to sit alternately. An active chaser can change position with a seated chaser, by touching him from behind (whose back must be facing you) by palm, and uttering the word ‘kho’ loudly, and simultaneously, chase or attack is build up through a series of ‘khos’ as the chase continues with a relay of chasers.

LAGORI OR SEVEN STONES

Seven Stones is a traditional Indian game, it is also called Lagori saat-pathar and pittu.  Seven stones should be on top of each other as a pile within a circle and the defending team takes positions. Attacking team gets three chances to hit the pile of stones with the ball (Underarm or Over arm) to knock the pile of stones. As soon as the ball knocks the pile of stones, the defenders catch hold of the ball and try to get the opposing players ‘out’ by hitting them with the ball in their leg below the knees. The aim of the attacking team is to rearrange the pile of stones before the other team can make all the players out.

CHAIN CHAIN

The game consists of a ‘denner’, whose aim is to catch the other players. Once the        denner catches a player, the player becomes part of a chain(which is formed by holding hands) and then has to help the denner in catching the remaining players.

HOPSCOTCH

Hopscotch is a children’s game that can be played with several players or alone. Hopscotch is a popular playground game in which players toss a small object into numbered spaces of a pattern of rectangles outlined on the ground and then hop or jump through the spaces to retrieve the object.

LANGDI

A traditional game just like hopscotch. The denner hops by keeping one leg up and tries to catch the other players. As soon as someone is out, he/she becomes the new denner. A never ending fun game.
