Assalamu-alaikum (peace be upon you) IYG blog visitor,

We hope this post finds you indoors away from the wildly unpredictable Indiana Winter weather (well technically it’s still Fall but temperatures inform us otherwise). Inside the warm, friendly confines of the ISGL this Friday evening, our youth reunited after a long week at school to enjoy an old game developed many years ago by our IYG game developer, Br. Salah. The game, you ask, is called Sock Battles. We’ll let your imagination run a bit wild as you try to figure out the rules for the game but we assure you it is quite simple. Your friend has a pair of socks on his feet…how can you remove both of them without physically causing your friend any pain or harm? Perhaps the pictures below will provide some clues to the answer:

Mohamed succeeds! Ahmed is about to lose his socks...but here come Yazan and Elyas to save their friend!

Ahmed takes a moment to ponder what went wrong as Eshaan enjoys a break from the action in the background.
