Tocatì, International Games in Verona

(Where we thought we knew what these games were called, we have included the name. If you know better, let us know! Some of these are from Spain, some are Italian games both modern & antique.)

"Lucha de Palos," a friendly battle with sticks – with the object being to hit the stick, not your friend

"Fionda," a game played with a hard rubber wheel with a string wrapped around it. The players threw the string out releasing the wheel. Sort of like a yo-yo that doesn't come back to you.

"Bolo Huertano," kind of like bowling but with different diameter sticks, from Spain
