v. To dominate another, often in online gaming.

Originally a misspelling, 'pwn' has come to also be considered a contraction of the 'Perfect Own" of an opponent.

History: Pwn first surfaced in online play in 1992 - 1993 when MMORPGs were better known as MUDs. Pwn reached it's peak as a standard term amongst game players around the time of Bungie's Battle.Net (1997-).

Pwn has been absorbed into other common online-originating language mediums since then, such as Leet Speak and Singlish.

Other Uses:
Pwning, Pwnage, Pwned (past tense), Pwnt (past tense).
"I pwned all last night on Battle.Net"

Dates back to the 60s at MIT. Although the meaning remains the same it was not a typo. It was used competitivly by programers working on chess AI. When one out programmed the others he would refer to himself as King and the others as pawns. It started being used on Fido Net across the BBS world before internet went public, although it was used on the internet between university's at the time.

Def: To PWN or Pawn someone/something means to remove its status, to be made unimportant. It means that you have proved yourself better than another.

Heavily used in Online gameing community.
I just PWN'd you in that duel.

That item PWNs anything else.
