Back when I was living in Berkeley some friends and I played a game called
"Walk a Moony". At the corner of Shattuck and Center streets, in the heart
of down-town Berkeley, there is a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station.
Pedestrian traffic is heavy all day long, but especially during peak
commute hours. There are a number of Bookstores, Cafes, and shops clustered
nearby, and, at any given time, some large number of advocates: those
looking for signatures on petitions, others seeking to sign unregistered
voters, hucksters looking for a game of chess at a dollar a game (and, for
a while, beating those guys is how I kept myself fed - till they refused to
play me), acrobats, jugglers, musicians (I jammed with some of them) and,
of course, followers of the Reverend Sung Young Moon. The game concerned
the latter: points were allocated by the number of blocks yuo could get a
Moony to walk with you (no points for fractional blocks). I won most of
the time, using a simple strategy:"uh, huh, that sounds very interesting,
but I'm in a big hurry, do you mind if we walk while you explain it to me"?
I once walked a Moony 13 blocks using that basic stratagem.
