    Re: Meaning of

    It refers to playing a dangerous game to see who is the bravest. One version is for two people in cars to speed down the road headed at each other and see who swerves first. Many people have died playing chicken. I am sure there are other variations.

    TKS There is no such word as "tks". If you mean "Thanks", then write "Thanks".
    Welcome to the forum.

    See this link: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dict...h/play-chicken

    I found this by Googling "definition of to play chicken". Sometimes, Google is your friend and you might find an answer there faster than here.

    See my amendments above in red.
