It seems traditional Filipino games are synonymous with testing your speed and agility. One which will bring us back to our sweaty childhood days is patintero, a regular game enjoyed in Children’s Games legs all over the country.
To play this game, there should be a defensive and offensive team composed of five (5) members each.
On a drawn rectangular playing field, the offensive team would try their best to get to the other end without getting caught by the defensive team. Once all the members have passed through successfully without getting tagged by the defensive team on the lateral lines, the offensive team wins.
This fun activity became one of the highlights of the Lupon and Mati City, Davao Oriental installments of the Children’s Games in 2018.
