The Coracle Game

  1. Never play this game.
  2. Everyone gets a phone and the toll-free number for a large corporation.
  3. Your goal: get as deep into the phone tree as possible without authenticating yourself. Real account information is off-limits.
  4. Score 1 per touch-tone branch navigated, 10 per human spoken to, and -1 per minute spent on hold. Score no points, but die a little, each time someone with an accent is forced to tell you his name is Brad.
  5. Stop accruing points when the call ends.
  6. If you manage to commit fraud, you win! Now, hang up and flee across state lines.
