(What the indoor game was) For this cue card, I would like to tell you about a Vietnamese traditional fork game, which is bamboo jacks. It is not as popular as it used to be in the past; however, it always reminds me of my childhood.
(Who you played it with) This game includes ten thin, well-sharpened, round bamboo sticks and a ball, which traditionally is a fig. These days, tennis balls are becoming more popular as a substitute. The player tosses the ball into the air. While the ball is in the air, she must quickly pick up the sticks and then catch the ball. In the first round, the player picks up the slicks one by one. Next, she gathers two sticks at a time, and so forth up to ten. In these stages she plays with only one hand. Meanwhile, her face reddens and her eyes become intense as she performs in front of her friends.
(How you felt about it) I think the main reason why I feel content and absorbed with this game is that it teaches you how to be patient and focus on what you are doing. With this game, I can let off some steams after studying at school.
