Games God Plays


I have come to agree with Einstein that “God doesn’t play dice with the world.”1   It looks to me as though God’s preferences tend toward something on the order of Screw Your Buddy2 – and I’m pretty sure He cheats.


  1. Einstein and the Poet by William Hermanns (Branden Press: 1983) []
  2. Screw Your Buddy, aka  “Anaconda” and several variants  in the spirit of “Fuck Your Friend,” is a card game in which an unwanted card is forced onto other players. I became familiar with this amusement, appropriately enough, during my first year of medical school where it was my lab’s game of choice during lunch []
