Panjang Galah

After the Coke & Mentos Experiment, we had other things in mind - childhood games! Especially a game called "Panjang Galah"..coz i've been labelled no-childhood-guy for not knowing this game..haih. U all play b4 anot?

CheeHoa(2 persons), 3, 4..8 guys.

Plz observe diagram below for my illustration on how i think the game is played(after they taught me). Any corrections can be made at the comments there.

So got 2 teams - Cyan team and Magenta team. The Cyan team(#1,2,3,4)'s objective is to get pass the Magenta team(#5,6,7,8) to the end of the badminton court and after that get back where they've started(1 Cyan member reach considered win liao).

Magenta team objective pula is to stop the Cyan team from completing their objective(VERY LOGIC RITE?). So as the Cyan team approaches..the Magenta team can touch the Cyan members and if this is successful(touch 1 Cyan member can liao), then Magenta wins.

Sounds stupid rite? Not exactly. U see..for Magenta team : #6,7,8 can onli walk vertically across the badminton court lines(refer diagram). #5 pula special..he/she can walk horizontally across the whole court. So this is actually a mind game(more strategy than DotA wei). The Cyan team must know how to "bait" the Magenta members so the Cyan members can get to the other side one by one. The Magenta team pula have to work smartly to prevent that from happening. "Cool" huh?

Anyways..that is just wat i think. The game is almost like that la..if got oso i missed out some small points. U see..not every1 can remember the games they played like 10 years ago huh? For example..

We used to call it "Galah Panjang" instead of Panjang Galah.

And it was really fun too! Lots of laughter and memories haha :D
