Gaming top is a traditional Indian game popular among children. It is known by several names in different regions of the country. I came to know that the inventor of this top was a carpenter from India. Due to lack of popularity many facets of this game is not known to us. Can someone share more?

In English it is known as the Spinning top and in Bengali it is called Lattu. It used to be one of the popular street games of India.

Hey Guys, did you know that Gaming tops are among the oldest toys ever discovered by archaeologists. A clay top unearthed in Iraq was dated to 35th century BC, nearly 6000 years ago.
