Birthday Scenario Game is an online forum game and social media activity that involves matching up the month and date of one's birthday in a calendar list of pre-assigned situations or scenarios. Similar to other birthday-related word games and survey memes, the Birthday Scenario Game has a particularly strong presence on Tumblr and Facebook.
The original instance of Birthday Scenario Game was posted via webcomic blog Chibird by Jacqueline on June 14th, 2011. The list consisted of various phrases and pop culture references paired with 12 months and 31 days of the calendar year, with each month representing an action and each date representing a well-known fictional or non-fictional character. According to the description, Jacqueline came up with the game based on an elementary school game she was introduced through a friend.
Prior to the introduction of Birthday Scenario Game, the concept of word association games based on personal information has been previously explored through the No. 1 Song on My Birthday surveys as early as 2004 and Your NPR Name on Twitter in 2009.
About a month later, a text-only version of the game was submitted by Seventeen Answerology user mariella14 on July 13th, 2011. Throughout the latter half of that year, the game quickly spread across a wide range of online communities, blogs and other websites, including social networking sites like Facebook and Google Plus, microblogging platforms such as Tumblr and Pinterest, as well as the digital art community DeviantART, where the meme spawned dozens of variations of the game that are designed for specific fandoms.
In 2012, the Birthday Scenario Game continued to take strong hold on Tumblr and DeviantART and seeped into various imageboard and discussion communities, including the PetRPG Forums, Neoseeker Forums and MLP Forums among many others. Beginning as early as March 2012, Redditors began sharing their matching results along with their reactions through the medium of rage comics.
