Real Snake Championship


Even though Nokia is having some issues as of late, that's no reason to celebrate the awesomeness that is the little pre-installed video game Snake.

Y'all remember the video game Snake, right? The premise was simple. Eat as much as you can, grow big, and try not to run into yourself. It came pre-installed on Nokia phones back in the late 80's.

And now Real Snake Europe in Austria is celebrating today, October 23rd, 2012, with a real live version of the game. They're setting up a 15 X 20 meter field. Teams are in 3. And you have 120 seconds to go for glory. They've got teams set up from Germany, Austria, China, Japan, Poland, USA and Nepal.

this event is kind of like the Olympics. Only awesome. And in terms of urban sports, this beats Parkour any day.

If you're interested in seeing what it looks like, here's an example below:
