SKILLS DEVELOPED BY THE GAME
The game will measure the speed, agility and witty attention of players, and their ability to play, not as separate individuals but as a united team.

PLAYERS OF THE GAME
The game is usually composed of 5 runners against 5 taggers, but there could be less or more than 5 runners as long as there would also be the same number of taggers against the number of runners. GOALS OF THE GAME All the runners should be able to pass through the grid lines – all from the first till the end – and back again at the starting area, that they’re not being tagged. The taggers will also do the job of guarding, one tagger in each grid line, and will stop the runners from passing through the line by catching or tagging them using the pat or the hand, reaching the front part of the runner’s body, NOT THE BACK PART. THE PLAYCOURT Extensive space is needed in this game. A square of length 6 linear meters, and 4 horizontal meters must be marked to an even split in three dimensions. EQUIPMENTS USED IN THE GAME Aside from yourself and the playground area, there are no more other materials used during the game. But in official Patintero games, the players use different colored chalks placed on the palm of the taggers to leave marks on the bodies of the tagged runners and serves as a basis that the tagging was valid. RULES OF THE OFFICIAL GAME In an official game of patintero, each tagger uses colored chalks on their palms so as to be clear and

prove that the tagging is valid due to the marks that will be left ONLY ON THE FRONT PART OF THE RUNNERS’ BODIES. TIME There will only be two (2) minutes for each team accumulate their points during the game. OFFICIAL GAME ESSENTIALS

Five (5) line referees to do the watch, one referee per line. One (1) person to compile and record the scores and at the same time watch the clock for the time. HOW TO PLAY THE OFFICIAL GAME
• Sa bawat guhit na malalagpasan

ng Bangon, bibigyan ang pangkat ng dalawang (2) puntos. Ang puntos ay igagawad lamang sa nangungunang Bangon na pinakamalayong narating, at hindi sa bawat kasapi ng Bangon na nasa likod kahit nakakalagpas. Kapag nakabalik sa simulang lugar ng hindi natataya ang nangungunang Bangon ay magkakaruon ng karagdagang anim (6) puntos ang kanilang pangkat. Kaya’t sa isang matagumpay na ikot, ang pinakamataas na puntos na pwedeng matamo ng pangkat ng Bangon ay (20) dalawangpung puntos.

Kapag ang isa sa mga Bangon ay nataya, muling babalik ang lahat ng Bangon sa Homebase upang magsilmulang muli, at ang itatalang puntos ay yoong sa kakamping Bangon na may pinakamalayong napuntahan. (Pagkatapos lamang ng dalawang (2) minuto magpapalitan ang pangkat ng Bangon at ang pangkat ng Taya.)

Sa pagkakataong naging patas ng puntos ang dalawang grupo, bibigyang konsiderasyon kung sino sa dalawang grupo ang may mas maraming “home run” o matagumpay na ikot.

Sa pagkakataon naman na pantay na pantay ang dalawang grupo kahit pa sa mga “home run”, uulitin ang buong laro.

a) Muling mag-ja-Jack en Poy ang dalawang pangkat kung sino ang unang maglalaro bilang Bangon; b) Sa pagkakataong ito, bibigyan ng limang (5) minutong tagal ang buong laro (hindi na dalawang minuto bawat pangkat); c) At sa bawat pagkakataya ng isang kasapi ng pangkat ng Bangon, palit kaagad at magiging bagong Taya ang dating Bangon; d) Ang may pinakamaraming puntos sa loob ng limang (5) minuto ang idedeklarang panalo.
