The Game game is a “social phenomenon and an anti-memory game, the object of which is to forget its existence”. It’s spread by word of mouth, and there are only a few basic rules:
- Knowledge of The Game is the only thing required to play it.
- Thinking of The Game causes a player to lose.
- A losing player must announce the loss.
There’s no end to the game, and players can lose repeatedly; the only object is to lose less than your opponents. There are a variety of strategies that can be used to maximize your opponents’ losses while minimizing your own, so players should be creative. Oh, and by reading this story, you lose The Game (go ahead, announce your loss, I had to to write this story).
