When we helped Chía's Children (8-11) to develop their ideas to actually
produce a game/activity for Sugar, they certainly got motivated by the idea
of children from other countries playing/learning with their
"transformational games".

>From ASLO's statistics [1] It seems like the "Hangman/El Ahorcadito" is the
most popular among children (with 44,324 downloads to date). This activity
aims at teaching children their rights by finding the key word on time.

We tried to be practical and focused on providing children with definitions
that would actually teach them how to act in case one of their rights got
vulnerated. This course of action may change from one country to the other,
according to each country legal frame.

Bottom line, the challenge with localization of this one, is it would
require an "adaptation" of the texts that explain children's
rights/obligations in an specific place/country.
