// BLURB //
Hide and seek is arguably one of the most popular childhood games in many cultures around the world. In a way, the concept is introduced to us at a very young age while playing “peek-a-boo" with our parents. Throughout our lifetime we will encounter many instances of such “play”, such as losing the car keys or that single sock that seems to be hiding in an alternate universe. It is believed that hide and seek may have originated in ancient Greece and Rome, where it was played as part of religious rituals and festivals. The game was likely a symbol of the human desire to escape from the realities of life, with the hider representing the individual seeking refuge from the world, and the seeker representing the deity or supernatural being trying to find the hider. In ancient Greek and Roman mythology, the gods and goddesses were known to play hide and seek, and it was believed that the success or failure of the hider was an indicator of their fate in the afterlife. The game of hide and seek in ancient times was likely similar to the modern version, with players hiding and seeking each other in various locations and giant vases, using their wits and skills to avoid being found, erupting in ethereal euphoria when the sole winner is announced!
