For the past couple of weeks, the kids have been playing a very bizarre Nepali game. Non-stop. I’m still unclear on the rules, but it’s a game involving two equally sized teams on a field with a base opposite the starting point. The defense lines up while the offensive players one-by-one shout “SABATIIIIIII”, without taking a breath, and running to the base opposite. Other players follow and join hands with any other teammates at the base. If they run out of breath the defense can tag them, sometimes roughly. Eventually, the offensive players keep their hands joined and run out of base, trying to tag the opposing players while their teammate continues his “sabati” breath. If the Sabati and chain of hands are broken, then the defense can grab the escaping players, but before that happens the escaping players can tag the defense.
I actually don’t know. It’s really strange and I don’t understand it at all. Take a look.
And a couple videos.
And now pictures of my bunkbed 2.0. Much better design than the first one.
