The Sneaky Cards





An Australian kid named Harry Lee (clever alias?) recently developed a brilliant game designed to "spread the seeds of sneakiness and espionage." I love it already.

Harry took ordinary index cards and turned them into "Sneaky Cards," which he tucked into his classmates' pockets, binders, and books. The cards came in a range of colors, and each one challenged the recipient with a dare of sorts. According to Harry's explanation (which you can find here) . . .

BLUE cards test your audacity and chutzpah.
YELLOW cards require sneakiness and espionage skills.
RED cards involve finding things - and not just objects.
GREEN cards are about goodwill and giving to others.
PURPLE cards will plague your brain with puzzles.
ORANGE cards challenge you to create art with purpose.
SILVER cards are information cards.


Even more awesome? When Harry hunted down the cards he'd distributed, he found they had all been passed along multiple times. Even the school's teachers got involved!

Harry Lee, you are now an honorary member of the Irregulars!

I think the Irregulars need to invent more cards and make a nice printable pdf. It's such a fun idea but he never got beyond the one card.

I'll try and make some! ...but it might take a while. You know how it is, so many devious plans, so little time...

I made two of these today. One for me, and one for my sister. I put one in my friend Jen's bag, and I waited to see if she saw it. I'm not sure if she did, but I'm going to make another card for tomorrow to try again. And ask her if she got it/passed it on. It was actually quite hard to find the right moment to slip it in her bag....

Darn I want to do that but I would probably get suspended. My school can't do anything fun. I wrote this kid a Hogwarts letter, but he said it was creepy even though it wasn't - all I wrote was the supplies list and the dress code. Do you find that creepy in any way? - and went to the middle school principal. I had to run down there and tell everyone that I wrote the letter. Talk about a kill joy. I was going to "ghost" people for Halloween, but someone would probably tell the headmaster >:-(
