Spanish translation:"Hacky Sack"
Explanation:
Sorry I can't help you with the Spanish term, but I'll describe what I believe 'hacky sack' refers to in your text. (Maybe you'll come up with the Spanish term yourself!)

Hacky sack is a little bean bag that gets kicked around. It was popular for a few years and has since died down, I believe. It could be played by people in a circle, kicking it (using the inside or the outside of the foot) to each other, or it can be played by one person alone.

I hope this helps!

juegos de "churro, mediamanga, mangaentera"...


Explanation:
En España, en mi época de colegio jugábamos a eso bastante. Es un juego bastante bruto según los mayores.
Se hacen dos equipos, uno de ellos está en fila con la espalda doblada, unos contra otros, formando una especie de potro humano alargado, sobre el que tienen que ir saltando cada uno de los componentes del otro equipo.
Una vez arriba todos, si los de abajo lo han resistido, uno de los del equipo de encima marca la muñeca, el codo o el hombro gritando churro, mediamanga o mangotero, adivina qué tengo en el mortero!! y si el vocal del equipo burro, adivina, cambian los puestos.
El juego, según las zonas se llama juego del burro, o juego del churro.
La traducción iría así: conocida por sus juegos al "burro", entre bambalinas.

Backstage Hacky Sack Games


Explanation:
Backstage Hacky sack games puede referirse a cosas muy diferentes: Podría tratarse de "banales juegos de saco, tras bastidores" o podría ser "Jugar a despedir sin razón, tras bastidores", o también podría ser "relaciones superficiales de cama, tras bastidores". Creo que depende de lo que se dice antes y después de este texto específico puede determinar la traducción más acertada.

Espero sea de ayuda.
