Cultural/Traditional Games: Ddakji (딱지)

Is there are any of you ADDICTED to ORIGAMI?? Why I said "Origami" and what does it RELATED to our TOPIC today??ㅋㅋ Well I'm NOT interested to make a GROUP for origami CLASS session here as I'm NOT good at it!ㅋㅋㅋ However the GAME that I wanna talk about here is RELATED to ORIGAMIㅋㅋ DDAKJI (딱지)is one of the MOST POPULAR games among KOREAN since LONG time ago. 

I try to LOOK for the FACT of when did it get STARTED but I FAILED to FIND it.ㅠㅠ I FOUND a FACT about it but it was NOT clearly STATED as well the author DIDN'T shows any EVIDENT to SUPPORT it..Despite of giving WRONG information here I guess the BEST I can do is NOT revealing about the FACT!ㅋㅋㅋ  As I'm LIVING in ASIAN country, I FOUND out that MOST Asian countries SHARED a bit SIMILAR games to ONE another!ㅋㅋㅋWhat a SURPRISED!ㅋㅋ I CAN'T believe it at first, but its TRUE! ㅋㅋ My CLOSE friend who LIVING at KOREA said they play the SAME games, what a SMALL world!ㅋㅋㅋ

For DDAKJI, I think at my country we DIDN'T play this game ㅠㅠ(During my childhood, I never saw anyone play this but I'm NOT sure late 1998 years on wards).ㅋㅋㅋ We have SIMILAR games but we use PEBBLES! However my KOREAN friends says they have that VERSION too!ㅋㅋ The BEST part is ONE of my GERMANY friend also said the SAME things!He DOES played well with my NEPHEWS when he COMING OVER!! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Ok for ASIAN countries to SHARE it I think its COMMON isn't it?? But EUROPE?? 대박!(Daebak) INTERESTING!ㅋㅋㅋ Back to OUR topic, ddakji. DDAKJI can be PLAYED at ALMOST ANYWHERE whether INDOOR or OUTDOOR! The ONLY things that NEEDED when to play is DDAKJI itself.
