Đánh quay is a game for boys. Usually it is played in 2 groups, and these can be divided into more groups if there are more players. You can also play it alone…, but it is more fun and exciting if you have more friends cheering for you.
In order to play, a player needs to have a “spinning top”, which is made of wood or animal horn and is cone shaped. A wire is wrapped carefully from bottom to top and then the top is spun on the ground. The spinning top that that spins the longest is the one that wins. Players can use their tops to hit those of their opponent. If their spinning top stops, they lose the game. If students who are learning Vietnamese can try this game when visiting Vietnamese’ countryside.
