Let’s take a new look at the world’s oldest game – The Blame Game. Yes, that’s right; The Guinness Book of World Records has recently awarded Blaming the title of the world’s “Oldest Game.” It is fascinating at least to me, that although The Blame Game is probably the most popular game ever invented and that we all actively participate during some time in our lives, the history of blaming is not well understood. What do we really know about the history of blaming? Where did it all begin?
When did it start?
While The International Blaming Federation (IBF) might have us believe otherwise, The Blame Game was not invented by this certifying and organizational body. In fact, Blaming Quarterly (BQ) magazine’s recent editorial did not detail the origin of blaming, yet strongly suggested that it began many years before the IBF was even formed.
Although rarely publicized, The Blame Game has been played since the beginning of biblically recorded time. The first written account of blaming was performed shortly after the creation of the world, according to the Judeo-Christian-Muslim view.
