Comic #1312

1 Adam: How about a wager for my soul?
2 Adam: I challenge you to a contest and if I win I return to life?
3 Adam: Chess is traditional, right? I'm good at chess.
4 Head Death: NO. WE HAVEN'T USED CHESS SINCE THE 1970S WHEN NO RUSSIANS DIED FOR ABOUT A DECADE.
4 Adam: {deflated} Oh. Myth busted.

I wanted to include some reference to Russians having a reputation for longevity, and it's because they play a mean game of chess, but I think it's more the Georgians who tend to live to 120+ years.


2016-02-27 Rerun commentary: For the latter half of the 1970s, the game of choice was Monopoly, but the Head Death used to get angry and flip the table over all the time.

He wanted to know why he didn't come first in the beauty contest, dammit!
