Our Children’s games book is taking shape. We made a survey about what you’d like to see in the book, and all your great suggestions will help to make it better and more fun to use. At the moment, PocketCultures contributors from different parts of the world are writing about games played in their countries.

We know that PocketCultures readers live all over the world too, so we decided to hold a competition for you to tell us about favourite games in your country. Write about a game played by children where you live and your entry could be featured in our book!

We welcome entries from any country of the world.

To enter, tell us about a game played by kids in your country. Tell us how to play it, and something extra about how it fits in your country / culture: do you know a story about the game’s history? Or does it bring back memories? Do kids still play these days?

Games which don’t need equipment are best (that way kids all over the world can play). It could be a game you play indoors or outdoors, a game with a song attached to it, it might involve running around, it might be a sitting-down game.

The prize
If you win:
– your game will be included in our book of children’s games around the world;
– you will be profiled on the author page of the book;
– you will receive a free copy of the completed ebook

How to enter
1. Send your entry by email or post it on your blog (link to this post and leave a comment with a link to yours)
2. Submissions should be less than 500 words
3. Closing date is Saturday 23rd October

We’ll summarise all the entries and link to all the online ones in a post after the competition closes. Can’t wait to read yours!
