|Russian term or phrase: войнушка|
|"дети должны понять, что играть можно не только в войнушку."|
i actually don't know if it's a generic term for any sort of games with two teams fighting/plotting against each other (like cowboys and indians, for instance) or if it's some particular game with distinct rules. either way, there's казаки-разбойники for cowboys & indians, so it won't do.
is there any equivalent for войнушка?

|thanks for your help, guys! i think "play war" fits best here since there are many ways you could play war and basically only one way to play cowboys & indians/cops & robbers/kazaki-razboiniki. for instance, when you play war, you don't necessarily have to split up in teams. each can play for himself against all the others, or some kids could team up in couples. i'm surprised the solution is so simple. i really should be getting more sleep. :) thanks again! |
