Gateway to Asian Games takes you back in time to the 1950s and 1960s to try your hand at a whole array of games that children entertained themselves with before the hi-tech era. From outdoor games like kite flying, main lereng (whats that, you may ask), rounders and hopscotch to indoor games such as Snap cards, congkat, dayam and xiangqi, none of the games described are electronically used and yet they have provided hours of pleasure and fun.

This book also embodies a little of Asias history and will shed light on the lives of your parents, grandparents and even great-grandparents! Their lifestyle was simple but certainly no less fun.

Outdoor Games: Kite flying, main lereng (bicycle rim), hantam bola, rounders, hopscotch, chapteh (shuttlecock), gasing (spinning top), skipping, swing, firecrackers and fireworks.

Indoor Games: Snap and Happy Family cards, cherki cards, five stones, paper dolls, tangram (7-part puzzle), congkak, dam, dayam (aeroplane) and Paramapadam (snakes and ladders), weiqi, and xiangqi (Chinese chess).
