Turumpo (top) – This is a popular game throughout the country. Each province has its own shape and style of top but the most beautiful and biggest are those found among the Maranao of Mindanao. The game is done with ordinary skill in order to manipulate the top. The top is usually made of soft wood for those used in regular games and hardwood for heavy competition. The top is played by winding the meter-long string around the top. The top is held between two fingers and the thumb and thrown to the ground. The competition is of two kinds. One is to inflict damage on the opponent’s top— the top that receives the heavy damage lose the game. The other one is to keep it spinning for the longest time— the one that spins the longest wins.
