SCOUT has been nominated for Spiel des Jahres!!
Passing on a classic traditional game to future generations
"Kankeri," an outdoor game that fascinated children in the Showa period, is an active game of hide-and-seek. Children are divided into two groups: the parent who protects the can and the ogres who try to kick the can. If the ogre is found by the parent before they can kick the can, they're caught and immobilized. The ogres have to hide and wait for the right moment to jump out. Many generations have played this game enthusiastically until the sun goes down. As the readily available types of cans became thinner and evolved, the game is no longer played. But, now, with the cooperation of the Oni-gokko Association, we've compiled the rules along with an easy-to-use can into a single, no-fuss package.
