A game played with straight people to see who has more balls, metaphorically. the game is played in several ways. The most simple, and weakest, is the kiss. One 'player' moves in for a sensual kiss until one of the 'players' backs off. I've seen this lead to tongues but someone will always pull away. Another way gay chicken is played is by groping the other 'players' genitals or breasts or anything you can get your hands on. The most common form of the game is gay pillow talk in which each interaction escalates until someone laughs or just can't respond. Lastly, 'players' can initiate dry humping sessions. Hardcore 'players' will use a combination of three tactics to win the game. Some have been known to even use all four tactics at once. This plan of attack is very tricky.
Joshua is the King of gay chicken. I saw him pulling down Daniel's pants while he was kissing his neck. Then he proceeded to dry hump him as he tried to run away with his pants down.

A game played by two straight guys, where both slowly slide their hands up the inside of the other guy's legs until one player chickens out, and thereby loses. Gay players cheat.
Jimmy is so good at gay chicken, I think he's cheating.

A trick used by gay guys to get a kiss out of their straight friends. Ironically, the "loser" actually wins, and the "winner" is just gay. If a kiss occurs, both players lose, and should get a room.

A game where two people of the same sex (and preferably straight) put their faces closer and closer until one of them chickens out. If none of them do, then they get closer until they kiss.
My gf played gay chicken and she thought it wouldn't be cheating. Fucking bitch.

To Face off with another guy and move their faces (lips) closer and closer together. The first one to turn or pull away from the other is the Gay Chicken.
Kirk and Jon started to play Gay-chicken. When they were just centimeters away from touching lips, Jon turned away because he knew that Kirk was totally committed to going all the way. Jon would rather be called a Gay-Chicken rather than Gay.

A past-time enjoyed by 16-17 year old boys, where both lean in close to each other, about to kiss, until one pulls away, showing that he has complete boy arms and assigning the other the title of Manly.

The furthest this ever seems to go to is lip contact, though there has been one occassion where tongues may momentarily kiss.

If played too often, people may think you are gay.

Gay friends who are only permitted to observe the contest, often find themselves becoming bored with semi-homoerotic activity, as it always ends at the good part.
Greg: Wanna play gay chicken?
Pat: Okay
*they kiss*

Greg: Wanna play gay chicken?
Mark: Not really
*they nearly kiss*

Greg: Wanna play gay chicken?
Matt: Um...
*they nearly kiss*

Peter: Greg.. are you gay?
Greg: NO!

Greg: Wanna play gay chicken?
Rob (aka. Boy arms): BRING IT ON!
*their tongues touch in the kiss*

Greg&Rob: AAAAGHH NOOOO!

Gay Friend: This is shit. You guys suck.

Gay chicken in like the regular game of chicken except that instead of driving at each other on a collision course, players make homosexual advances until one player will "chicken out". However, like in the normal game of chicken, the worst result for both players is when neither chickens out, in the case of gay chicken resulting in some form of homosexual act.

Traditionally this is when two guys slowly go in for a kiss, slowly moving toward another and the guy who can tolerate it the longest wins. If neither chicken out, then the two kiss.

There are many other variants on Gay Chicken like running a hand up each other's thigh or simply kissing into the air, winking, etc.. One form it may take is a straight out gay action that would immediately creep out the other person without them even intending on playing the game, e.g. coming up behind someone and surprising them with a tap on the ass. In this way, Gay chicken becomes more like a prank than a one-on-one game of wills.
Stan: Oh look. Tom's going in for the kiss...
Rex: Tom's not very good at gay chicken.. nope, he chickened out.

John: Man gay chicken disturbs me. Yesterday Alex just came up behind me and grabbed my ass. Creeped me right out.
Steven: Alex can chicken out everyone. I wonder about him sometimes...
