So, I have already written a blog about Hide & Seek you can check out here… Hide & seek game how to play, rules, more Hindi/English, or just search in the search box your choice. But I was shocked that there is also a world Hide and Seek Tournament is a thing.

I always thought that it was a local game which is popular in children but no on the world scale adults play it more seriously than any others.

Similar was the case when I was writing about the world Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament -> Checkout Here… World rock, paper, scissors tournament how to play, rules and more to know more about it.

What is World Hide and Seek Tournament?

To put it in simple words it’s a world Tournament for those who still want to enjoy their childhood game (Hide and Seek).

This started in Italy (in Bergamo to be Specific) in 2010 and currently, there have been 9 editions of it till 2018.

It is based on the Italian Style of Hide and Seek which is played on a huge playground with artificial/natural hideouts.

My thoughts

When I first found out about this, I was shocked same as when I researched for the RPS Tournament.

This means the games I played as a child are now played as global games.

I would really like to have something like this you know, just enjoy our childhood.

 If such events ever happen in India, it will be a one-of-a-kind event just imagine how awesome it will be.
