Mata chola – Peru

Mata Chola S-America Peru Playing with things game Props: a pellet in a sock and a rope. N.o.p.: 2
The game starts when a third (not playing) child throws the sock to the lamppost, but on which players’ side the sock falls, he may start. Both players stand each on a side of the lamppost. The intention of this game is that the sock will be repeatedly hit by hand from the position of the player (so each on his side of the lamppost) Two children play this game, in which a pellet in a sock is tied at a rope hung at a lamppost. Because of hitting the sock, it will be whirling around the lamppost, the harder you hit, the more the sock will whirl higher and become more difficult to hit it back. The player who succeeds to hit the sock as high as he can and therefore almost unreachable for the other player to play forward from his side has won.
