1 Family/kin games are usually lower stake games and are a sociable activity, while general games more likely to be high stakes games where elements of kinship responsibilities are not adhered to [4,8,9,34].
2 A tong is a small fee card players pay to enter the card game (usually held in a house), and players may receive cups of tea and biscuits.
