7. TRADITIONAL GAMES 7.1 1. Batu Seremban 5 stones will be used for this game which will be provided by the organizer. Players are not allowed to use their own stones during the game. The way to determine the players turn is to be decided by the organizer. The players will play 7-step-game for each round in a fixed period of time. The one who finishes the game with the most number of round and step will be considered as the winner for that stage. The top 4 players will be selected to play in the final stage. Step 1: all stones are tossed on the base. One stone is to be picked and tossed in the air. While the stone is in the air, the player must pick another stone from the base without causing any motion of other stones and catch the one in the air before it touches the base. If failed, the player will lose his turn. The same process is repeated until all stones on the base are collected. Step 2: akin to step 1, except that 2 stones are consecutively to be picked from the base instead of one. Step 3: akin to step 1, except that one stone is to be picked followed by 3 stones. Step 4: akin to step 1, except that all four stones are to be picked in one go. Step 5: with all stones in one hand from step 4, one of them is tossed in the air and the rest are placed on the base. The single stone is re-tossed and the four stones on the base are re-collected. Step 6: 2 stones are to be picked from the base. One of them is tossed in the air. Meanwhile, one stone on the base is replaced with the other stone in the hand. The process is repeated until all 3 stones on the base are substituted. Step 7: proceeding from step 6, both stones from the hand are tossed in the air and one will be caught by one hand. The other stone together with one stone from the base are caught by another hand. This is repeated until there are 3 stones in one hand and 2 in the other. Again, the 2 stones are tossed in the air and each is caught by separate hands. Then, the 4 stones are to be placed into another hand after tossing the single stone in the air and making a palm-touch on the base. Before entering a new round, the player will play the KING stage. All stones are tossed on the base and one of them is to be picked by other players. The single stone being picked out is tossed in the air and the remaining are caught in one go. The player must say ONE game/TWO game etc while tossing the stone. If forgotten, the player loses his turn.

A regulation game has five players per team. Scoring -- Each time the offense completes a pass in the defences end zone, the offense scores a point. Play is initiated after each score. Movement of the Disc -- The disc may be advanced in any direction by completing a pass to a teammate. Players may not run with the disc. The person with the disc ("thrower") has ten seconds to throw the disc. The defender guarding the thrower ("marker") counts out the stall count. Change of possession (turn over) -- When a pass in not completed (e.g. out of bounds, drop, block, interception), the defence immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes the offense. Substitutions -- Players not in the game may replace players in the game after a score and during an injury timeout. Non-contact -- No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made. Fouls -- When a player initiates contact on another player a foul occurs. When a foul disrupts possession, the play resumes as if the possession was retained. If the player committing the foul disagrees with the foul call, the play is redone. Self-Refereeing -- Players are responsible for their own foul and line calls. Players resolve their own disputes. If dispute persists, each team captain has to take charge. Spirit of the Game -- Ultimate Frisbee stresses sportsmanship and fair play. Competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play.
