Discordian Games

Well, maybe not unique to Discordians, but definitely creative and playworthy, this collection of 40 campus-coffee-house-worthy games is worth the bookmark. Let us take, for example, Solitaire, as played discordantly:

...once you have finished your turn, rule changes happen. Your opponent (hereafter referred to as Player X) is allowed to change one of the rules in any manner, but only in regards to you. This includes "rules of politeness." (Legal rule changes include but are not limited to: "You cannot build black on black." "You must do the Achy Breaky Dance before every deal." "You do not have to shuffle before dealing." "You must deal a 5 by 5 field instead of a 7 by 5.") Player X, optionally, may forgo this privilege and remove a rule you imposed on hir.

Though sites relating to Discordianism abound (e.g. Discordian.com), there is either too little or too much information available about what Discordianism is all about. The closest I came to epiphany was this, from the third commandment of The Pentabarf: "A Discordian is Required during his early Illumination to Go Off Alone & Partake Joyously of a Hot Dog on a Friday; this Devotive Ceremony to Remonstrate against the popular Paganisms of the Day: of Catholic Christendom (no meat on Friday), of Judaism (no meat of Pork), of Hindic Peoples (no meat of Beef), of Buddhists (no meat of animal), and of Discordians (no Hot Dog Buns)."
