Luksong Lubid (jump rope)

This is another common game played only by girls between the ages of 5 to 15. This is usually played outdoors when the weather is good and indoors during the rainy season. The length of the abaca rope depends on the players involved. The game is played first using two 'its' who are replaced after a player touches the rope with his feet.

Luksong Tinik (thorn hurdles)

This is a very common game played largely by girls ages between 7 to 12, though, in some areas, boys join in. This game is played outside with players divided into sets, comprising of the mother ('inay) and her child ('anak'). The 'it' are two players who seat facing each other, stacking their feet and hands together, gradually increasing the height while the opponents jump over it. Any 'child' player who touches any part of this hurdle is saved by the 'mother' who would jump on the former's behalf. If she, too, fails to accomplish the feat, both 'mother' and 'child' becomes the 'it' who would assume the seated position.

Palo Sebo (greased bamboo climbing contest)

It traces its origins to a similar game widely played in the Visayas that had men racing up a greased coconut tree. It is also similar to the 'Pinang' game of Java, Indonesia. The game is played by young males and generally done in an open space during fiestas and other celebrations. A long polished bamboo pole greased with oil is planted on the ground with the prize placed at the topmost of the pole. All players, whether individually or as a team, try to climb the pole for the prize. The prize, usually cash, is increased depending on the sponsor's generosity.

Patintero

This game is played by boys and girls, ages 5 to 10 years old in mixed teams. Adults though tend to rank themselves according to sex. There are two sets of this game. One requires six players to a team while the other needs eight players. The game is played outdoor at anytime of the day and at night when the moon is out.

The game is prepared on the ground by drawing a rectangular field (usually five to six meter with four parallel lines inside) using either water, stick and charcoal on the ground to define the boundary.

To play, one set of taggers or the 'it' situate themselves inside the lines of the rectangle while the runners will try to get through both ends of the field and back without being tagged or blocked. When caught, they right away change roles. The group that has lesser tagged incidents is declared winner. The games is widespread in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Sunka or chongca, sungca, sunkaan, sunca, tsunka

This is another set of game widely distributed in the country and the rest of Southeast Asia. This game is played both outdoors and indoors and is played by both children and adults. This is played by two players with a wooden pea-pod shaped board with seven small holes in rows on each side, and a big hole on each end filled with an equal number of 'sigays' (small shells).Each player takes turns picking up from any hole on his/her side, putting one 'sigays' in the small/big hole to his/her left, then picks up all the 'sigays' from the last hole that the last sigay is put and places them in the big hole to his/her left. This is repeated until one person no longer has any 'sigays' to play with and is declared the loser. The person with the most number of sigays is declared the winner.

Taguan (hide and seek)

This game has no limit to both boys and girls of ages between 5 to 15. This is played outdoors during daytime and on moonlit nights. Children are most often discouraged by parents partly due to a belief in unseen spirits that might harm their children. The game starts in an unidentified base where the 'it' closes his eyes and counts to 100 while the other players start hiding. After the count, the 'it' start looking for the rest of the players. Once found, one is automatically out of the game. In some provinces though, once a player is found, the 'it' will have to run to the base and touch it while the found player tries to beat him to it. When the found player beats the 'it,' he remains 'it' until everyone else is located.

Turumpo (top) 

This is a popular game throughout the country. Each province has its own shape and style of top but the most beautiful and biggest are those found among the Maranao of Mindanao. The game is done with ordinary skill in order to manipulate the top. The top is usually made of soft wood for those used in regular games and hardwood for heavy competition. The top is played by winding the meter-long string around the top. The top is held between two fingers and the thumb and thrown to the ground. The competition is of two kinds. One is to inflict damage on the opponent's top-- the top that receives the heavy damage lose the game. The other one is to keep it spinning for the longest time-- the one that spins the longest wins.

Yoyo

According to early researchers and documents, this particular piece of instrument was not intended for game purposes but as instrument in hunting or capturing animals and as self-defense. Presently, yoyo is made of wood and acrylic plastic though before it was made of carabao horn, ivory, silver, and even gold.
