Picking your brains on childhood games

As you probably know I am a scout leader and am trying to find traditional games from all over the world to use with the kids I work with.  This will be part of international awareness, which will run to October when the scouts will have a chance to communicating with other scouts from all over the world.  I would like to pick your brains, in particular if as a kid you lived in a place other than Portugal, so I suspect you may have played different games from the ones I did.

So if you have some minutes to spare,  can you please pick one or two and explain them to me?  It would be great if you could tell me:

– The name of the game (in the original language and a rough English translation),

– The country it originates from

– A brief explanation of the game and any kit required

– Any potential web link for further details / videos / tutorials.

Note the games don’t have to be over complicated or require a lot of stuff.

Thank you!
