Misdirection

When playing a game of strategy, force your opponent to zag when he wants to zig.

Zigzag: This week, share a photo that foregoes the straightforward in favor of the twisting and winding.

When playing a game against an opponent, whether it’s gin, checkers, basketball, tennis or tag, taking the straightforward route is likely to spell defeat. Unless your opponent is an idiot, in which case it’s the easiest way to victory. Head-to-head battles are all about imposing your will on your opponent. Zag when you want to, and force your opponent to zig when he wants to zag.
