I've been spamming this link everywhere, simply because I think its the coolest thing ever.

http://www.paradigmpuzzles.com/QT3Play.htm

Basically, when you take your turn, you place two markers per turn, instead of just one, but only one of those markers will end up being "real" when the game finishes. Because only one of the markers will be real at the end, both players can place markers on the same location, causing the location to become "entangled". When entangled locations become circularly entangled with each other, a "collapse" occurs and one of two possible collapses must be chosen. A "collapse" determines what the final values each location will hold at the end. The game ends when all locations have been collapsed.

This neat little twist on such a simple game makes for some complicated strategies.

That's an interesting way to demonstrate quantum mechanics, took a few readings of the rules to get it, well, I think I get it Wink
