Batu Seremban or five stones is a traditional game usually played by girls at the verandah, inside the house or any surface area that is flat and clean for the players to sit and play. The game requires five stones or any five small objects known as 'buah' to play with. Besides the common five 'buah', players can also choose to play with seven or nine 'buah', depending on what type of game they are playing. The player will be sitting on the floor and 'buah' will be scattered on the floor. Then, one player will is to throw the ' buah' into the air one at a time and sweeping other 'buah' from the floor, catching the one that has been thrown before it reaches the ground using only one hand. This game starts with sweeping only one stone at a time, gradually adding the number of stones to sweep until completing the five / seven / nine' buah' as the game gets more complicated. The first person to complete every level of the game wins.
Another game usually played by young girls is called congkak. Most of them love to play this game because of its fun and easy game-play. Marbles / saga seeds / small stones are used as tokens to be filled in every hole (also known as 'kampung') of the congkak board. The main goal is to collect as many tokens as they can to be filled into the 'houses' (also known as the 'ibu') located at each end of the board. Players will be seated directly opposite each other facing the board. Players will start playing simultaneously by taking the tokens out of one of the holes and putting one into each consecutive holes starting from right to let until they reach the 'kampung' of their opponent. They will continue to do so until they run out of tokens that are collected at their respective 'ibu'. The player who has collected the most tokens in their 'house' wins the game.
Galah Panjang is not an individual traditional game, It requires two separate teams of attackers and defenders. Each team usually consists of not less than four players, thus the game is played by about ten players. Every player is required to run past all defending lines, from the first line to the last and run back towards the first line without any physical contact with the opposing team. If any member of the opposing team manages to touch any player, the player is considered 'dead' and out of the game.
Konda-kondi is one of the favourite traditional games of Malaysian children. The game usually consists of two teams competing against each other to get the highest points. Each group consist of 4 to 10 members. The game required sticks, a short one of about 15 cm in length, and a longer one about 30 cm in length. Both sticks are cylindrical and has a diameter of 2cm. A hole about 2. inches deep and 2 inches wide needs to be dug out from the ground. The first player starts the game by placing the smaller stick across the hole, while the longer stick is used to strike the smaller stick flying to the air. Players from the opposing team are required to catch the smaller stick before it reaches the ground. If they succeed, the players of-the first team are considered 'dead', and the opposing team will take its turn. If they fail to catch the small stick, one of the team members need to toss the smaller stick into the hole from a certain distance. If the stick doesn't land inside the hole, points will be given according to the distance between the hole and the stick.
Perang-Perang pr Mock War is a game that is usually played by boys. Often, they make their own weapons like wooden guns and slingshots, using cherries and tiny eggplants as bullets. There are some who use cardboard boxes as forts. Two teams are needed to play this game - the more the merrier. Each team will decide on their own strategies against the opposing team. Whoever gets hit by a 'bullet' is considered 'dead' and out of the game. The team who is able to withstand the 'war' wins the game.
Tin can telephones are traditional toys that are almost forgotten. Using two empty tin cans connected by a long wire at the bottom, a telephone is made. There are a/so other versions that use paper cups connected by a raffia string. Each player will hold a can and straighten the wire by putting some distance between them. The caller will speak into the can and the receiver will listen by holding the can up to their ear. The caller's voice can be heard through the receiver's can. The game is a fun way to send messages and secret information to friends.
