In the board game Risk:Legacy, where you change the game as you play (making a unique game), the A in Legacy is the Greek letter Delta which is the scientific notation for  "change". Game designer Rob Daviau confirmed this as an Easter egg.

Bonus: in the very bottom of the box is a completely game-changing envelope that reads "Do not open. Ever."

Not so much an easter egg as it is directions for morons, but some books of safety matches say "Strike on reverse side" on the side without the friction strip.

That's going to make me do something along the lines of the QR Code.
Found that funny.

I'll probably embed a feel good message or something.

The columnar rickroll reminds me of a story of an author who encoded a message about his publisher in the first letters of chapter titles: "A. A. Wyn is a tightwad." Fark did it too on April 1 a long time ago before we were also angry at April Fools jokes.

Haven't opened mine yet, but it's been spoiled that there are 1 of 4 scenarios on it. It supposedly takes 15 games to get to all the parts that can be changed and there's a lot to keep track of who wins each game.

Some game groups have been known to let the person who won the least amount of games decide whether or not to open the card.

A few years ago I had a Western Digital My Book external drive that I used to store my VMs. While looking at the case I noticed that the airholes looked like dots and dashes for Morse code. I started translating them and found out that, yes, it was Morse code. First time in my life I ever found an Easter egg on my own.

Nice catch.
It's funny how once pointed out it becomes obvious. Just like the subway air-holes from the article.

Lol.
For my next team-building event* instead of trust falls** I'll have trust cookies, and what the impact of having that trust
:D
Ah, team exercises. Fun, and in the right hands, so insightful***.

*hopefully. One day. Damn you Covid.
**some people assume trust falls are a joke, but I've seen people on structures barely three feet high refuse to drop. I've seen people break into tears of anxiety even with ten people behind them ready to catch them
***a skilled facilitator just allows the team to surface its usual dynamics and reflect what happens in the office and reflects it back to the group for them to make sense of, and decide, if anything, what they want to make of it

I had three WD My Book external drives and two of them failed in completely different ways (fried PCB on a 0.5 TB and an inexplicable loss of all data on a 1 TB). I found the rotten egg of HD manufacturers on my own.

So, noiw I have to buy a black light to look at my passport.  (all of the ballet emporiums are closed due to covid).

Then use your passport to travel and make sure you bring the blacklight with you. You can use it again at your hotel room.

No thanks.  About 20 odd years ago we were on a road trip to Buffalo for a Bills game.  As we arrived at our motel we noticed a body being wheeled out of a room.  After we checked in, we discovered that our room was next door to the room in question (which now had crime scene tape across the door).  Our room was, filthy, mold in one corner of the ceiling, the bed spreads were stained, the carpet was stained and it smelled.  I wanted to nope out of there right away but my buddies refused.  I slept in the car.  I do not even want to imagine what a black light would have revealed.
After that trip insisted that in future road trips we stay in a higher quality of motel/hotel and told my cheap ass buddies I'd pay the difference ( I also said I'd pay for the rental of a luxury land yacht for the weekend, I was getting to old to tolerate the discomfort of squeezing four 250 lb men into a Suzuki Samurai)

If I used a blacklight here it would look like a Jackson Pollock painting

Another board game Easter egg:

Inside the Bigger, Blacker Box lid for Cards Against Humanity is a card that says "A Bigger, Blacker D-ck". You have to cut into the liner to get it out.

it's true, promise. grease and oil from actual cookies would have damaged the puppets. even a raisin cookie is better than a painted rice cake.
