Sun.Star Cebu - - LIVE! - ROMAYNE DANIELLE RIVERA / Writer ALLAN DEFENSOR / Photographer

Ever since way back, chil­dren al­ways seemed so ex­cited to grow up and be­come adults. There have been games made to “tell” the future like Flames, Magic 8 Ball and Mash. These games are fun, cre­ative and ex­cit­ing to play as kids wait on the an­swer as the “future” un­folds. Aside from the games men­tioned, there’s one that stands out among the rest: the Paper For­tune Teller.

The Paper For­tune Teller, oth­er­wise called cootie catcher or paku-paku, is a form of origami used to fore­tell some­one’s future. Parts of the paper are la­beled with col­ors and num­bers that would serve as op­tions for the player to choose. The per­son op­er­at­ing the origami ma­nip­u­lates the paper by the choices made by the player. Fi­nally, af­ter sev­eral shifts, the oper­a­tor un­veils the hid­den mes­sage tucked un­der­neath one of the pyra­mids! There are ab­so­lutely no rules as to what words and num­bers should be writ­ten on the paper. One can be as imag­i­na­tive as he can be!

Not only does this game fore­see the future, it also pre­dicts other things. In this case, it can def­i­nitely re­veal which char­ac­ter you are most likely to be if you were in “Game of Thrones”! In­ter­ested to find out if you’re Jon Snow or Daen­erys Tar­garyen? Stay tuned to www.sun­star.com.ph for the video.
