Last Man was invented by Kyle Whelliston and first popularized through his now-defunct website, The Mid-Majority, and its @midmajority Twitter account. Below is a chronological list of links to blog posts and tweet archives about past years’ editions of the game. (Many of the links go to the Internet Archive, because the Mid-Majority website was shut down in 2014.)
