    Default Counting Tug of War

    Stolen from another forum.

    Rules:

    In every post, increase or decrease one digit of the number in the previous post by 1. Increasing a 9 turns it into a 10; and decreasing a 0 removes it (as does decreasing a leading 1 as it would make a leading zero). If the number ever reaches 0, it can be changed to either positive or negative 1.

    The name comes from the fact that usually a number of teams will play. The two main teams are increasers, who want higher numbers, or decreases, who want lower numbers. Other teams may form in the future.

    Additional rule: No double posts, in fact you must wait for three other people to post before you can post again.

    Okay, the first number is:

    123456789

    31345678. Increasing the 9 makes it a 0, which removes the digit, right?

    Turns it into a "10", technically. I don't know how it works beyond that.

    3234567810

    @v I'm pretty sure that reduces it back to a 9. Otherwise that puts the game largely in favor of decreasing and makes increasing to the maximum pointless.

    adding to a 9 adds a number, so a 10
    decreasing a zero kills the number... like so:

    if you can take away a 10 in 1 move, then you can add a 1 from an invisible 0. otherwise it's not tug-a-war.

    I don't think that's quite how it works. I think it goes up from 9 to 0. OP, correct me if I'm wrong.
