Tou-hu (Pitch-pot) game
Update: 12/07/2017 12:00:00
Tou-hu (or Pitch-pot) is a game originating from China. “Tou” means throwing, “hu” stands for a vase. The Tou-hu game players throw the small wooden stick that will knocks on the wooden plate (called "con coc/the "Frog"), bounces toward the pot and drops into the pot’s mouth (presently, it is too difficult to play with this plate, the player can throw the stick directly into the vase's mouth).

This game challenges the player's skillfulness and used to be the favorite game of the aristocracy, often played in the imperial palaces, royal families or residence of mandarins under the Nguyen dynasty (1802-1945). 
At present, royal games including the Pitch-pot game are often organized in the space of royal palace on the first day of lunar New Year. From April 22, 2017, they have been organized for visitors on the courtyard of Can Chanh palace in the program of Royal Palace at Night.
