GridGames.ID – Some time ago, the Chinese government has imposed new rules relating to restrictions on access to online games.

The rules, which are aimed at children and teenagers under 18 years old, regulate the time to play online games for a maximum of 3 hours in 1 week.

Not only that, children and teenagers are only allowed to play games every weekend, namely Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and national holidays.

In addition, the regulation also prohibits them from playing at a predetermined time, which is from 20.00 to 21.00.

Then, what will the rules for limiting online games be like?
