And so did every single one of you.

There may be threads pertaining to "the game" but does anyone know how/where this game got started and how long its been around?
Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

It's from everyones favorite meme generating random board on everyones favorate meme generating 'chan site.

I can't say more, I try not to break rules 1&2... god knows I lecture enough people in public about em'.

I'm not sure if that's where the game started, it may have come from 2chan or somewhere else, and have been popularlized by the site of which I speak....

Whenever I see ten year olds screaming about the game I wonder if they post OC, or if they are just the cancer....

RIP cosmoknot.

I know but still this a free speech forum where we should discuss this phenomenon. I first head of the game from my room mate who used to live on the road for a few years. He was a wondering hitchhiker and he said he first heard it staying with some people in Arizona in the early 2000's.

"The game was invented in 1977 by members of the Cambridge University Science Fiction Society (CUSFS) who would regularly meet at the Horse and Groom pub (Kings Street, Cambridge, UK) to drink and discuss game theory."

That is from http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/the-game

Much older than the internet, for sure! It is the perfect game for channers, but certainly did not originate from there.

You obviously don't know the rules of which I speak... which prevent me from TELLING you about them.... If the rules involve not speaking, you can't speak about them.

As to the original orgin, that's quite interesting lantern... it does, certainally, owe the internet it's popularity though...
