These games are played all year round, outdoors and indoors. From outdoor games the most popular were „Olympics“, „Earth Game“, „Vibration“, „Lets“, „Egg“. Olympics were played with 3 players, using a rubber band. 2 players hold the rubber band with both hands and chant „O-lym-pics“, at the same time forming a net of sorts. The third player must then fit through this net, either climbing below or between or jumping over it. If the rubber band was not touched, the player could continue in the same role, but if it was touched, the player switched roles and replaced one of the rubber band holders, who in turn started playing the role of the climber.
