This is why I love Reddit. It’s home to some of the smartest, yet most insane minds on the planet. Today I stumbled across Gmail Chicken, a game thought up by Reddit user _SynthesizerPatel_. The game combines the usually harmless idea of ‘chicken’ with the terrifying concept of offending a superior or family member.
Gmail Chicken: The Rules
1. On Gmail, go to settings and turn on ‘Undo Send’, setting it to 30 seconds.
2. Write a verbal assault directed towards a person in your contact list.
3. Send it.
4. See how close to the 30 second mark you can get without cancelling the send.
I’m not sure if this is an already known game, although a quick Google search hasn’t returned any results. It’s certainly a game you should play with your friends.
On a day where I planned to get a lot of stuff done, I have instead found myself sucked into an amazingly addictive gameplay experience in the form of Gyro for Android.
To explain Gyro would only take a few seconds. You control a colourful wheel in the centre of your screen, made up of Cyan, Orange and Purple segments. You control direction the wheel spins by using a slider at the bottom of the screen, or by manual rotating it. As you do this, coloured dots gradually float towards the wheel, gradually increasing in speed and numbers. Your objective is to rotate the wheel so that by the time a dot hits it, the colours are matching each other.
It’s an extremely simple concept, however has been designed extremely well with a very minimal yet high quality looking user interface.
