3. Life HORSE


Basically, if one person goes up to a person and asks for something like the time, each other player has to do the same thing with the same stranger or else they'll receive a letter. Spell HORSE and you lose.




Before boarding a flight, look around and assign roles to the strangers surrounding you in the event that your plane crashes on a mysterious island. Each person will have to play a part in a mini-society in order to survive. And bonus points if you remember where each person is sitting in the plane before you take off in the event that the tail breaks off. Via Totes Muh Gotes.


11. That's The Guy!


Walk around having a conversation, and wait to find someone wearing a suit holding a briefcase. Backhand your friend in the chest, and say, "HOLD UP, ain't that the guy?" While pointing at the guy in the suit, say "That's him! That's the guy! THAT'S THE FUCKIN' GUY!" and start walking toward him.

If the guy starts backing away, start sprinting full blast, and you'll see that most of the time the guy in the suit runs like hell. If the guy doesn't move at all, march up to him, look him dead in the eyes, and say, "Sir, It's an honor to meet you. Might I shake your hand?" Regardless of their answer, say, "Truly, it is an honor." Promptly walk away. Via CllctCallOfCthulhu.
