No geographic restrictions? Suppose one of them gets a DoD clearance that lets them stay on a guarded base for February each year? I would tap-tap-no-miliary-zones on that one in a heartbeat.

Glob forbid, but suppose the one who is "it" suddenly passes before tagging someone. How then does the game proceed?

Supes: I hope they have no tag backs.


I would assume it's considered bad form to tag if the person being tagged knows you are present. Surprise would seem to be part of the fun.

CSB:

My wife's family passes around an old bottle of beer from a camping trip her father and his brother took decades ago. The story goes that the beer was amazingly bad and each brother tried to sneak the last bottle into the other's bag before the trip was over to get rid of it.

Fast forward and now it gets passed back and forth between the next generation in ways that are continuing to execute in complexity. It has been hidden inside of a gourd that the target was asked to help cut up for dinner. It has been presented on a fancy cruise by the wait staff as desert. It has been presented as part of a wedding toast by the maid of honor to the target bride. Etc etc etc.

Standing unwritten rules are once you've received a pass you can't pass back to the person that gave it to you, and that you can't pass until some hazily defined period has passed after you got it (preventing serial passing at a single family event).


I'd guess they likely have similar unwritten rules about their tagging that make it more fun.

A mysterious envelope delivered by a courier in the dead of night. Opening it reveals a piece of paper with only two words.

...I have no idea where that execute came from. Escalate? Increase? Sure. But execute?

Don't mind me. Maybe I should try drinking that beer now.

The original WSJ article includes a mention of the "no tag back" rule.

We have that in my family, but it's with the helmet my cousin was wearing when he got his first skateboarding concussion.

Pic of the guys in the actual article fulfilling every damn stereotype. Golfing, with official golf outfits, prison pussies, and they probably all listen exclusively to sports radio.

It sucks to know they have an otherwise awesome thing going on.

There's a great story about Harpo Marx playing "murder" in someone's mansion years ago. He had gone into one of the bathrooms, unrolled a bit of the TP, and written "Your (sic) dead" or something similar on it. His random victim used the bathroom, and had to play dead until the rest of the guests figured out who the murderer was. It didn't take long, since Harpo was known for his lack of orthographic skills.

I had a can of Wegman's Diet Ginger Ale that went between me and my ex-roommate for anout 10 years. Eaxh time we'd visit, the can would have to be hidden somewhere in the house.

Somewhere along the way, the can fell over and emptied. On the last trip about 5 years ago, I hid the can behind a photo on a bookshelf.

Few weeks go by and I contact his wife to ask if they found it. Turns out the day after we left the cleaning person came by and tossed the can.

I read TFA and then thought, "this would totally make sense if the last guy "it" had to buy beer for the rest of the year", but your version works, too. Totally CSB.

I thought the link from the article about the family isolated in Siberia was more interesting.
