This year’s Southeast Asian Games is proudly hosted by the Philippines. Everyone’s excited about it, in fact, the hashtag #SEAGamesFail has been trending nationwide since last weekend where all sorts of fiasco went down. This event is just an endless string of bad news unfolding every hour quicker than those workers can finish the game venues. And speaking of unfinished stuff, since it seems as if nothing is final yet for this momentous event, maybe we can add more games?
This is not your ordinary SEA Games cauldron.
Aside from its clean and simple design, the organizers jacked up its price tag to make it easier to plunder money.

Mechanics: Each team will be given a giant cauldron or kaldero (organizers aren’t allowed to say how much it costs) and players have to ride it down a precarious unfinished skate park. Once they reach the bottom, they have to drag it up for the other players to ride.
The second part is where players have to scale the Php 55M 50-meter-tall SEA Games cauldron to retrieve the clue at the top and proceed to the next game.

Mechanics: The early birds for the SEA Games might have had a little practice but the rest of the teams could catch up. This game requires the players to line up chairs, lie on them as comfortably as they can, and sleep. Simple enough. Perfect points for those who can make it look like the most natural and easiest thing ever.

Mechanics: Do everything but eat for the entire duration of the Games. This seems easy enough since athletes are being served street food for meals anyway.
I’m not good editor pero if someone will ask me to edit out for tarpaulin that can be used to welcome our guest, I’ll do it for free. The fuckk. Is this how our government prepare for SEA Games? Shame. Totally flop. Y’all must disappear.#SEAGamesfail #SeaGame2019 pic.twitter.com/iQqMeMV4VX

Mechanics: Seeing as the current SEA Games logo should be treated as more of a suggestion than an official logo, athletes and artists will have to come up with the best logo for the games. They can be as creative as they want but their logo has to have historical significance and not just colorful bubbles, obviously.

Mechanics: Simple: purchase the polo shirt and model it. Just look at how excited the SEA Games organizer is to model his own fit:
Meanwhile, PHISGOC Chairman Alan Peter Cayetano and Vice Chairman Abraham Tolentino fit their outfit for the gala and opening of #2019SEAGames. Both are designed by Rajo Laurel. 🇵🇭 #SEAGames2019 | via @isay_reyes pic.twitter.com/gD19ELPyVX

Mechanics: Athletes and their coaches will be given a limited budget with which they have to plan three healthy meals. The most important element in this game is the calorie content each meal will have. The team who will come up with the healthiest meal will be awarded and bonus points will be given for the team who had the most affordable meal.

Mechanics: A bunch of assorted IDs will be placed on a table. The first team to match 10 IDs with their owners will be declared winners. Don’t belittle this game, it’s actually a lot trickier than it sounds as some of the IDs have wrong photos on them. This will require group effort.

Mechanics: Having someone in your team with great penmanship will guarantee your country a gold medal. All the teams have to do is recreate banners using nothing but a pen and a paper. They can put borders and designs all they want but we’re looking for that menu-perfect calligraphy.
