The game

Damn. I just lost ….

“The Game is a social phenomenon and an anti-memory game, the objective of which is to forget its existence. It is spread mostly by word of mouth, leading to a number of variations, but all share the same basic rules:

  1. Knowledge of The Game is the only thing required to play it.
  2. Thinking of The Game causes a player to lose.
  3. A losing player must announce the loss.

The Game has no set rule defining a “winning” player, but participants can measure their performance by comparing how often they lose relative to their opponents. Thus, strategy in these games consists of attempts to make one’s opponents lose while minimizing one’s personal losses.”
