Indoor Games

Two players will face each other and begin to play a round of Gawi-Bawi-Bo (Rock-Paper-Scissors), the winner needs to shout three times Cham! (Hence the name) and on the last one he must point with his hand on a direction and the loser need to move his head in the opposite direction

Once they are in position, they should try to push each other with the hands. Each player can try to deceive their opponent by teasing, ducking or fake pushing.

 

Slap Game

Red Light, Green Light

Red Light, Green Light is a Korean children’s game were someone stands against a wall and closes their eyes; this person begins to call colors at their discretion, and it is when players can run and stop, the goal is to arrive to the tagger, if not you will be captured by him.

  

Marbles

Another worldwide know game and mostly played by all of us when we were children, the game goal is to hit your opponent’s marbles by throwing yours from a distance, and the player with the most marbles at the end win. This is just one of the variations you can play, there are a lot more you can try.

  

Squid Game

The game is commonly played on sand where you need to draw a shape like squid and can be played with several players.

  

It consists of two teams, one attacking and the other one defending; the defending team are entitled to stop the attacking team which are handicapped to only move by hopping in one leg, to prevent them from reaching the home square. If they failed to stop them, the attacking team wins!

 

Top Spinning

Easily played among several people, in this game a player spins a wooden top, usually on ice or on the ground and the goal is that your top spins for the longest time, to do so you are allowed to use a stick to hit it a keep it spinning.

  

In this season where we all want a quality time with friends and family, playing some of these popular Korean games which does not require nothing fancy to play, can become a great opportunity to leave aside for a moment technology and have a great bonding time with the people we cherish the most.

You can also enjoy some Korean snacks as accompaniment for the games.
