King of the Forum

While writing the previous post, I realized that the FOX television show “King of the Hill” is much more of a pop reference than the old game of the same name. I popped onto the info super drive-way to confirm. Even the wikipedia article for “King of the Hill,” has no mention of the game… I ran into an interesting King of the Hill thread at Armor Games. I find the thread an interesting example of creative, self-organized game play within a simple and fixed structure. The rules are simple: knock the person on top of the “hill” off by retaining the latest post.
