Gateway to Asian Games


Gateway to Asian Games takes you back in time to the 1950’s and 1960’s to try your hand at a whole array of games that children entertained themselves with before the hi-tech era.

From outdoor games like kite flying, main lereng (what’s that, you may ask), rounders and hopscotch… to indoor games such as Snap cards, congkat, dayam and xiangqi; none of the games described are electronic, and yet they have provided hours of pleasure and fun.

Each game is illustrated with pictures or diagrams. This book also embodies a little of Asia’s history and will shed light on the lives of your parents, grandparents and even great-grandparents! Their lifestyle was simple but certainly no less fun. Who knows, this book may even help bridge the generation gap. Let the fun – and the bonding - begin!

Outdoor Games:
Kite flying, main lereng (bicycle rim), hantam bola, rounders, hopscotch, chapteh (shuttlecock), gasing (beyblade), skipping, swing, firecrackers and fireworks.

Indoor Games:
Snap and Happy Family cards, cherki cards, five stones, paper dolls, tangram (7-part puzzle), congkak, dam, dayam (‘aeroplane’) and Paramapadam (snakes and ladders), Go, and Xiangqi (Chinese chess).
