Kamena s ramena (Throwing a stone from the shoulder) is a traditional Croatian game, primarily popular in Dalmatian Hinterland and Herzegovina. The game played with a big stone on a flat ground. The number of participants is not limited, but is mostly reserved only for men. The game is often followed by various songs and even dance. This game is nowadays part of "organized tournaments in traditional competitions."

Potezanje klipa (Piston pulling) is the most widespread in Dalmatian Hinterland. Two competitors participate in the game, who sit in the sitting position one by one while their knees are bent and at the same time hold a wooden stick about one meter long. Competitors keep the balance by swapping their arms with which they stick to the pole, after which it pulls on the referee's character, and the winner is the one who holds the pole in hand without changing the position, and throws out his rival from his position. The winner of the game until the next duel is named "The Biggest Kern of [Place Name]", and the most common place to play is Brnaz near Sinj.
