Traditional Games

Traditional games are a fundamental part of a people’s identity, for they are related to the history of their country.

They where based on the daily life of the populations, where they took their inspiration. They can be considered not only games, but also ways of socialization, and free-times occupation. Their greatest priority was distraction.

They came to us through oral tradition after they were passed on for decades or even centuries. Their themes where based around the daily works and changed depending on the seasons, the crops, pilgrimages, festivals and religious holidays. Work tools usually supplied the materials for the games (iron, wood, rope, etc.). Strength, dexterity and luck were all needed to the participants.
