'Making and sharing mooncakes is one of the hallmark traditions of this festival. In Chinese culture, a round shape symbolizes completeness and unity. Thus, the sharing of round mooncakes among family members signify the completeness and unity of families. In the Philippines, Filipino-Chinese celebrate the evening and exchange mooncakes with all Filipinos friends, families, and neighbors. A game of chance, known as the mooncake dice game, or simply mooncake game, is also played by both Filipino-Chinese and Filipinos alike.' - Wikipedia
