Gateway to Asian Games BAR079


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!
