Most Explosive Sport In Colombia!
What Is Tejo? Tejo is a game that was played by a Colombian tribe called Turmequé. It’s a game played with steel discs. The goal is to hit the little packages of gunpowder. The packages only explode when you hit them hard enough with the steel disc.
Originally Tejo was played with purely golden discs. The triangles, which are little paper packages with gunpowder today, were pure golden triangles back then. The goal was the same, when you hit the triangle you win. And back then you won the gold!
Unfortunately, the game isn’t played with gold anymore, so there’s no gold to win. But at least you get a nice BOOM when you hit the right spot!
