Game of the Day #2613

Xiao and Danny broke from work to play this old game, passed down through generations of school children: one person places their hands under the other’s, like so, and tries to pull their hands out and slap the top of their opponents hands before they react. If an attempted slap misses, the other person gets a turn to attack. It’s a game of reading your opponent and second-guessing yourself, and one of the many memes that somehow became ubiquitous before the growth of the Internet.

I took photos, hoping to catch one of the slaps, and the Googlebrain stitched together all those moments into a jittery motion. I rather like it, though – these two were so happy as they were playing this game.
