Trike Stop Dama
One guy plays with one peso coins, and the other, twenty five centavo coins.
Dama is a game that can be highly portable/spontaneous. A board, a pen to scrawl lines out with, and coins or stones are all you need for an improvised game that is sophisticated enough for grown-ups. It is a common sight at tricycle stops.
Slow day, with a snoozer in the back.
It is not a very gripping game that commands a lot of (non-player) attention. At least, not until people see that someone is taking photos.
Within a few seconds, aspiring extras come running from their tricycles to pose.
