삼-육-구 (or 3-6-9 in english) is a number sequence game which is very similar to the game 7-UP.

Players should sit in a circle or in a manner where it is possible to play in sequence.

A person is choosen to start the game, the player says the number 1. Subsequent players continue the sequence by saying the following number (ie. 2, 3, 4, 5..). The twist comes when a number is associated with 3, 6 or 9.

Association can be any of the following:
1.Containing any of the numbers 3, 6 or 9. Including 30, 31, 32.. 60, 61, 62.. 90, 91, 92..
2.Can be divided by the number 3

The player whose number is associated with the above will Clap their hands. Players do the same thing succesively. Those who get their number wrong will be eliminated. The remaining 1 or 2 person(s) are the winners (the game may go on and on if there are only 2 players).

Variations to the game:
1.Start from a random number instead of the number 1
2.Get players to do a funny action instead of clapping
