How it all started
Extreme Hide and Seek was first played in Biblical times with Noah of Noah's Ark fame. Historians have proven that there wasn't a flood inundating the Earth, but rather a large wet game of Extreme Hide and Seek being played.
Moses was a keen Seekmaster General. Who can forget the now infamous Red Sea incident when hiding from Pharaoh?
Not counting Hide and Go Jesus, Waldo is the best. He is so good that the government reguarly takes pictures of plaes where he is likely to go, like a zoo, or back in time. People then participate in finding Waldo. On the plus side, Waldo generated massive profits by selling the "Where's Waldo" books. When he is finally found scientists will explore other ways to keep the search going. See also: The 2011 book "Where's Waldo?: The path to Mental Health."
- "Iron Man" Joe Stalin v. "Girly Man" Adolph "Call me Al" Hitler. A textbook example of the "ten army divisions" maneuver.
- Stanley v. Dr. Livingston. One of the early "friendlies".
- Vladimir and Estragon v. Godot. One of the few matches where the Fugitive may score an overwhelming victory. The match is still ongoing.
- George W. Bush/Barack Obama/Tony Blair v. Osama bin Laden. Found and then hid again. The clock has been reset.
