You're the kind of person who wants to be the best at all
games, right? Not just video games like Street Fighter or Call of Duty, though.
You also probably want to defeat your peers when it comes to playing Scrabble,
guessing a coin toss, rock, paper, scissors, and every other contest under the
sun. Now there's a handy guide that'll
help you hack your way to your full competitive potential.
The Washington Post has published an extensive guide on how
to become that best at several popular games without putting in all that hard
work trying to get good. For example, the Pac-Man entry highlights a few danger
zones to avoid if you don't want to get chomped by ghosts, the best
intersections to bait ghosts towards, and a safe spot where Pac-Man can catch
his power pellet-stinkin' breath.
Some guides are pretty basic, like the aforementioned
Pac-Man tips, while others go further in depth on strategy and even sometimes
physics. For example, one video breaks down the physics behind a coin toss, and
how you can use science to actually come closer to predicting what we generally
consider a random event.
It's a fun read/watch if you're interested in impressing
your friends and winning bets. Just remember not to tell anyone else you read
this article. Oh, crap…
