This study aimedto design and implementlocal games-based mathematics learning (das-dasan) to supportstudents' mathematical strategic competence. Itconsistedof three stages, namely the identification and analysis of the traditional game, the designof learning activities based on Realistic Mathematics Education (RME), and the implementation in the classroomwhichinvolved twenty 7th-grade students.Data about the local game was collected through observations and interviews with five residents where the game is originated.Data on students’ strategic competence was achieved through a test given to the students after learning. The analysis of test resultsrefersto the indicators of strategic competence. The present study found that fifteen students are able to achieve all indicators (formulating, representing, and solving the problems) with high scores. Meanwhile, five students could only represent the problems but have not fulfilled the last two indicators. The findings of this study indicate that learning mathematics based on traditional das-dasangames has the potential tohelp students developstrategic competence.
