Original title must have been ‘Game of Stupid’. Unbelieveable.

Elvy says:

A bunch of entitled fools and idiots who think this is a “game”

Teri-Lyn says:

Wow, the irony: social media that encourages disconnection. This will def get the attention of those with questionable/criminal intentions, and something they will somehow swing to their advantage.

LuanaA says:

My kids will get 72 slaps to the head if they try this! It will be guaranteed game over!

This is great that our police are warning the public of this game.

Bob says:

Hoping kids would not get sucked in so easily.

Blue Collar says:

is it possible that the two young girls that were missing for a couple of days last week were playing this game? it is dangerous to claim that this practice as stated ‘is not being played in Canada’… kids are not as stupid as most adults think they are!
