In this photo by Aaron Favila, a boy aims a coin at his opponents’ coins during a game in suburban Malabon, Philippines. The game locally called pastra uses coins, but its rules are similar to marbles. Players try to knock out coins inside a square marked on the ground or hit an opponent’s coins to win. The winner gets all the coins in the box.
