In terms of regulation, the Philippines has one of the friendliest board game policies in Southeast Asia, which reduces a lot of the resistance to enter overseas market. Although philippine people are not interested in in-game purchases with low internet speed, it doesn’t affect the prospects of the board game market in the Philippines. If you go to the Philippines, it is necessary to find out the popular board games in this country.

Mainstream board and card gameplay in the Philippines.


Tongits is an indigenous card game that originated in the northern area of the Philippines and spread to the United States in the mid-1990s, called Tonk. In recent years, with the development of chess and card games on-line and the popularity of smart phones, Tongits has gradually become the national board game on-line to play in Philippine.

It is a 3-player rummy game, using 52 cards, the game has two kinds of scoring combinations: I, the same suit and continuous cards; II. Identical cards of different suits.

4、Casino Slots

Some suggestions

In the local game market, dependence on game outsourcing and serious influence of the United States’ products, filipinos have certain requirements for the game screen, so, we need to pay attention to the art quality which is in line with the aesthetics of Philippine players.

Since Filipinos love to socialize, social features such as friend list, chat system, various tournaments and rankings can be incorporated into the game to meet the social needs of players.


In general, we should do a great localization based on the selection of local gameplay which catering to the preferences of players, combined with a variety of marketing methods when publishing board games in the Philippines.
