The game known in America as "jacks" is played in India. As is tag.
Likewise Parcheesi, the board game. A game that appears to be a cross
between American Baseball and British Cricket is also played, co-ed.
Not particularly exotic, but sure does prove how little is truly "unique."
I suppose you wanted exotic, you could play jacks using small smooth
stones instead of the "jacks" ... it's what they use in rural India.
Been there, done that, got a NIICE sari ...
