Petak Umpet


Large space and lots of places to hide

How to play :

Petak Umpet is basically the Indonesian version of hide and seek. It does not differ much from other hide and seek games around the world. One player starts as a guard as she/he closes eyes while counting in a particular place. Other players hide. However, in Indonesia, the guard will shout “hong” if she/he finds the hiding players. Meanwhile, the hiding ones will shout “inglo, lio, lio” if she/he reaches the place where the guard does the counting.
