Our collection of non-Olympic games is growing. We have seen games played in childhoood and games played on the street.

Send me descriptions of games from your region.

For inspiration, here are two more traditional Kazakh games.

I recorded the first one with my colleagues Johannes Dell and Muhammad Norov on a recent trip to Kazakhstan.

The game is called 'Asyk' and is played with the bone-joints of sheep. Kazakhstan recently staged the first Asyk championship.







Another traditional game from Kazakhstan is eagle-hunting.

Our reporter Shodiyor Sayf sent me his contribution for my collection of non-Olympic games.







Tell me about the traditional games from your region.
