Patintero is a game that Filipinos love! It’s a game that requires two teams with at least 5 players on each side. If you decide to have more than five, two teams must have equal players.
The offensive team’s objective is to get their team to cross the rectangle back and forth without getting tagged by the enemy. One tagger is usually assigned per crosswise line to defend a certain area and block the offense team from crossing. The teams take turns in playing the offensive and defensive sides.
This game is great for companies because it encourages teamwork and communication.
2. Tumbang Preso
Tumbang Preso is a native game of Filipinos. It is derived from two words, “Tumba” which means To Fall, and “Preso” which means Prison. The game Tumbang Preso actually means the Fallen Prisoner.
How to play the game:
Before the game begins, all players must choose someone to guard the can. The “it” or the one to guard the tin can is decided after throwing their “pamato“, usually their slippers, to the toe-line. The one who threw farthest from the toe-line will then become the “it”.
Now, players take turns in trying to knock the tin can down with their pamato. Players who were not able to knock it down will have to stand by where their pamato landed. Once someone has knocked down the can, players are free to retrieve their pamato and run away from the it, making sure that they are not tagged. The first one to get tagged will become the new it to guard the tin can.
This is a great game to play for a corporate team building activity, requiring strategic thinking and quick reflexes.
Sipa, historically, used to be considered the National Sport of the Philippines. Sipa is made of a lightweight object that is covered with cloth or threads attached to it, usually plastic straw. However, in the modern sipa, players commonly opt to use a shuttlecock from badminton instead.
Sipa is a game that requires players to use their feet by throwing the sipa upwards using only one leg. The player must prevent the sipa from touching the ground by controlling and hitting it multiple times. The player with the most number of hits on the sipa wins the game.
It is a fast-paced and exciting game that is perfect for a company sports fest.
4. Luksong Baka
Luksong Baka is a traditional Filipino game that originated in the province of Bulacan. All players must decide on who the “baka” will be before the start of the game. Once it has been decided, players take turns in jumping over the baka who is bent over, until everyone has jumped. Only the hands of the jumper may touch the back of the person who is bent over. If any other part of the body touches the baka, that player becomes the new baka.
This game is perfect for small corporate team building. It is a fun game that encourages agility and coordination.
