I forget which episode, but the one where jerry and george want the same apartment. Is the "choose" game a real game? Ive always wanted to know how to play if so.

it's not a game so much as a decision-maker, not unlike flipping a coin. each participant chooses odds or evens. they then place their hands behind their backs, say one, two, three choose, and then reveal either one or two fingers. if the total number of fingers revealed by both participants is an odd number (ie: one player shows one finger, the other player shows two fingers, for a total of three fingers), then 'odds' wins. if the total is even, then 'evens' wins.

i am very much like george when it comes to this matter. i do not trust coin tosses. choosing is the fairest way to make otherwise impossible decisions.

Can't you put out any # of fingers? 1-5?

now why would you want to go and complicate things? one finger or two gives you ones and threes for odds, and twos and fours for evens. simple.

I thought I saw Jerry put out 3 fingers once. I guess I was wrong.

It can be played where each person puts out 1 or two fingers, or they can use all 4 fingers, or all 5 digits.(I guess that's the proper term.)

It's a lot like rock paper scissors in a situation solver kind of way.

Like Kramer and Mickey, except nobody ever wins- nothing beats rock!

Rock paper scissors match- Rock Rock
Rock paper scissors match- Rock Rock
Rock paper scissors match- Rock Rock

See the pattern?
