How it all started
Extreme Hide and Seek was first played in Biblical times with the first player believed to be Noah of Noah's Ark fame. Historians have suggested that there wasn't a flood inundating the Earth but rather a mass game of Extreme Hide and Seek being played.
Moses was a keen Seekmaster General. Who can forget the now infamous Parting of the Red Sea incident when looking for Elvis?
Not counting Hide and Go Jesus, Waldo is the best. He is so good, the government took photos of scenes where he is likely to go, like a zoo, or back in time. People over the nation participate in finding Waldo at every turn. On the plus side, Waldo generated massive profits by selling the "Where's Waldo" books. When he was finally found, scientists explored other ways to keep the search going. They made the book "Where's Waldo?: The path to Mental Health."
- "Iron" Joe Stalin v. Adolph "Al" Hitler. A textbook example of the "using ten army divisions" maneuver.
- Stanley v. Dr. Livingston. One of the early "friendlies".
- Vladimir and Estragon v. Godot. One of the very few matches where the Fugitive scored an overwhelming victory in what was considered a very uninspired match.
