Cosmic Wimpout is a deceptively simple, user extensible game combining chance and skill. The game promotes wisdom, fun, and fellowship; and many Cosmic Wimpout afficianados believe that long term playing of the game can eventually unlock the secrets of the universe.

It is played with 5 six-sided cubes displaying assorted arcane symbols. An optional combination score board and rolling surface, in the form of a piece of cloth or felt available in various colors and designs, may also be used. Players supply their own game piece for score keeping.

The origins of the game are shrowded in the mists of time, but it continues to be manufactured and distributed by a small group of friends. Possibly based on Pig and/or Zonk, Cosmic Wimpout was introduced in the 1970s and has often been associated with the Berkeley, Grateful Dead, and other free-form subcultures.

The annual tournament currently takes place at the Green River Festival in Greenfield, Massachusetts.
