The precise origin of The Game is not known at this point. However, the branch of The Game in my area seems to have come from Camp OSRUI in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin a few years back.
Another reliable source believes a professor at the University of Chicago invented The Game at some time.
In terms of how old The Game is, no one knows for sure. However I have recently been provided with an informative story: Recently a girl out to dinner lost The Game and declared it aloud (as one should). Then, a man tapped on her shoulder and told her that he had not lost The Game in twelve years until that moment.
