Mga Larong Pinoy

1. SUNGKA- Traditional Filipino game that uses shells or marbles which is equally distributed in each holes, it also consist two players with an objective to accumulate as many pieces in your own head. Sungka.

2. TEKS. Filipino children collect these playing cards which contain comic strips and texts placed within speech balloons. They are played by tossing them to the air until the cards hit the ground. The cards are flipped upwards through the air using the thumb and the forefinger which creates a snapping sound as the nail of the thumb hits the surface of the card. The winner or gainer collect the other players' card depending on how the cards are laid out upon hitting or landing on the ground.
