A kind of traditional kids game existed about the 80t century in the villages of North Sumatera province, Indonesia. In this region lives Batak tribe whose family name like Simanjuntak, Sinaga, Lumbantobing, Panjaitan, Sembiring, Hasugian, Saragih, etc.

This game is played by the kids, normally the girls despite the boys also are welcome to play along. All the rules of game commonly agreed by themselves before start palying.
During the playing this no cost game, those kids looked mostly in happyness eventhough sometimes there is a small argue among them if they encountered a dispute for the case that has never been known or agreed before. They were always ended with a conclusion then continued the game.

The game was usually played during the day but more exciting to play at the full moon nights that the moon shines the village all night as there was no electrification available in the village – that time.

Nowadays, technology offers many games which is new and more interesting but at the same time consequently will also demolish something else including this game.
The most different between this game and todays game is the interaction among kids playing this game while todays game using gadget and internet is  mostly played individually and of course involves a high cost.
