Shin-sin is a game popular within Belter circles involving one, two or more participants.
The objective involves balancing spheres made of resin or made of ceramic between players' knuckles and hands. This is usually accompanied by singing and moving the spheres in sync with the music, taking turns to move them between either your two hands or the four or more hands of others involved.

It was featured in one of the videos produced by Monica Stuart Books • TV and James Holden Books • TV as part of a living interest series to humanize Belters in the eyes of the inner planet population.
