Here is the 110 yen value (Sc #2499) from Japan's October 6, 1995 three-stamp set commemorating International Letter Writing Week. Stamp depicts a detail from a panel of a folding screen showing three people playing battledore and shuttlecock, an ancient form of badminton.

From wikipedia, "The game is played by two or more people using small rackets made of parchment or rows of gut stretched across wooden frames, and shuttlecocks made of a base of some light material, such as cork, with trimmed feathers fixed around the top."

This 500 rupiah stamp (Sc #1438) of Indonesia was issued on July 23, 1990 to commemorate National Children's Day.

Interestingly, there are 2 horizontal rows of tagging in the form of inscribed pentagons on the front of this stamp and also fluorescent fibers in the stamp paper. Scanning and photo editing brought this to my attention.

This January 20, 1993 one renminbi yuan value (Sc #2432) of the People's Republic of China is from the set of two stamps commemorating the birth centenary of Soong Ch'ing-ling, or Song Qingling (1893-1981). The two children appear to be an artist's conception, spliced into the portrait of Soong. Also, the face of the little girl appears that of a young woman

From wikipedia, "Rosamond Soong Ch'ing-ling was a Chinese political figure. As the third wife of Sun Yet-sen, one of the leaders of the 1911 revolution that established the Republic of China, she was often referred to as Madame Sun Yat-sen...During the Chinese Civil War, Soong permanently broke with her family and supported the communists."

On April 30,1993 People's Republic of China issued a two-stamp set featuring the board game Weiqi, or Go. The 20 renminbi value (Sc #2436) of the set, shown here, depicts a painting of two Weiqi players and an observer.

From wikipedia, "Go, Weiqi or Weichi is an abstract strategy board game for two players in which the aim is to surround more territory than the opponent. The game was invented in China more than 2500 years ago and is believed to be the oldest board game continuously played to the present day."
