handa na ang laruan.

huwag kang patatalo
sa paglalaro ng sungka
ako yata ang dalubhasa.

ikaw ang nanalo

(Sungka is a traditional Filipino Game played by two protagonists. The object of the game is to amass stones or cowrie shells in your home base (bahay) by continuously distributing the shells around lesser holes until you run out of shells to distribute. The person who collects the most shells in his/her buhay wins.)
