Cootie Catcher

cootieEverybody knows this fortune-telling game. A player asks a question, and the fortune teller operator answers using an algorithm to manipulate the fortune teller’s shape.

To use the fortune teller, the player telling the fortunes holds the four corners of the paper with pointer fingers and thumbs on both hands, keeping two pairs of corners together and the other two pairs separated so that only half of the internal sides of the corners are visible.

Have fun!
