Ordo is one of the most popular Kyrgyz games that have come down to us since ancient times. “Ordo” means “khan’s headquarters, khan’s palace”. The game reproduces the battle to capture the stake. Ordo is a kind of military map, with the help of which the warriors were trained on how to defeat the enemy. A circle drawn on the ground meant the territory of the state, and the rivals worked out a battle plan. The knocking out of the khan meant the overthrow of the ruler from the throne. The game is based on the ability to conduct a correct domestic policy, being careful within the circle, that is, in power.

“Beshtash” is the game that was distributed in Kyrgyzstan.

Girls usually play, from 2 to 5 people. For the game, you need a small rug, 5 small round pebbles. The game includes several stages, differing in different ways of juggling stones. Each stage has its own name: “termei”, “zhymai”, “shakyldak”, etc.
