Gold gate is one of the indigenous games that was very popular amongst girls. Boys can also play this game. Two people are chosen preferable the tall ones amongst the group, they form a gate by holding their hands upwards so that the others will pass through. The rest of the group forms a line and start going through the gate. The two that are holding hands sing a song while the others pass through. The person that will be passing the gate when the song ends is captured and is asked to choose between two things that each person chose as their identity pass. This can be a cake or chicken, whatever choice the captured individual chose it means they are part of that person group. This is done until the whole group is finished then they prepare to compete against each group by playing tag war.
Each group choose a person to represent them and they sing a good luck song for that person and they all have to pat that person on the head to give them strength. The winning group is crowned championed by capturing all group members of the other group.
