Dunno where it comes from, but my usage of "in & out" is for binary situations in grouping games, where there are only two groups, positive or negative, in or out.

E.g., Dec. '00 Birds are in the forest or not in the forest, June '01 Doctors are at Randsborough or Souderton, Oct. '96 areas of library budget expenditure are reduced or not reduced, Dec. '01, fruits at fruitstand are on sale/not on sale.



"In & Out" is Princeton Review terminology.  Theo's description is spot-on.  In fact, Princeton Review uses the birds in the forest game to introduce the In & Out concept.

f*cking shrikes.

I will remember that f-ing game until I die, die, die!!! 

(Anyone else feel that strongly about it?)


It's just a somewhat easier version of the maples/oaks/spruces/firs/laurels/yews in the park game in Superprep from which it was derived.

I agree. The shrikes/jays problem was easier than the Superprep one.  I was annihilated by the maples/oaks problem.
