Two teams stand on both sides of the playfield. Each child from both groups gets a number.
When your number is called, then both players with the same number in every group must run to the middle circle where the cloth lays. They walk around the circle and then you must try to grab the cloth as fast as you can and run back to your group without being tagged by your opponent from the other group. If you succeed bringing the cloth –untagged- to your group, you’ll get a point.

Chi chi chanh chanh – Vietnam

Chi chi chanh chanh Asia Vietnam Starting a game No props N.o.p : 4
Four children play this game. One child holds his hand open in the circle and the other three must touch this palm of the hand with one finger. At the end of the text they all say, the boy with the open hand palm must try to catch one of the fingers of the other three children. The trick is to pull out your finger at the end of the text immediately, so you won’t be caught. If he catches your finger, then it’s your turn to catch the other fingers in the next round.
This game is mostly used as a starting game.
