The 100 game was created by the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson -- who you may know for writing Alice In Wonderland under the pen name Lewis Carroll.

Carroll’s Oxford students were amazed. On February 5, 1856 he wrote in his diary: “... the trick of counting alternately up to 100, neither putting on more than 10 to the last number named, astonished them not a little.”

Vsauce: Hey. Vsauce. Michael here.

Vsauce 2: VSAUCE! KEVIN here!

While I have not watched Vsauce 3 I can assume from the pattern that this is how he does the intro:

Vsauce? Is (name) here?

A game that you can always mean

Which also means a game that you can always lose

Chess is the most complex game there is. More than any other game.

I'm gonna use this knowledge to *absolutely destroy* my younger brother in that one flower picking game from Super Mario 64 DS.

I have only watched the first part, when they were saying random numbers. I promise I have never watched this video before, or seen any video that contain the same thing. But I seem to have figured it out myself. Start with 1. Then your friend says a random number. Take that number and multiply it with any number, so his number and your number makes 11 in total. Then proceed to do this. Your friend picks a random number, say for example 5. You will choose 6, because 5+6 equals 11. Then at some point your friend gets to 89, and he’s stuck.
I might be missing something or got it wrong, but now I will watch the video till the end.

Edit: ok. This was only for the first game. I was right about the 11 thing, and i think what I said had something to do about the real explanation.
