Is everyone playing The Game?

Maybe I'm years late and you are all already playing, but I searched and didn't see a thread on it.

Rule #1 - Everyone in the world is playing The Game. You always have been and always will be. Participation in the game requires neither consent nor awareness of its existence.

Rule #2 - Whenever you think about The Game, you lose. Loss is temporary. As soon as you forget about The Game, you start winning again. The game is perpetual, you can lose hundreds of times a day for the rest of your life.

Rule #3 - When you lose, announce that you have done so.

I have been losing for the last few minutes as I create this thread. Everyone reading this just lost. Some of you for the first time. Congratulations, and welcome to my nightmare.

So, people with Alzheimer's would be considered cheating?

I look forward to some form of dementia or memory loss. Anyone know a good hypnotist?

Apparently, the object of the Game is for everyone to lose.

Since, if you follow rule #3, everyone in the room loses, and must thus announce it, and then you lose again, and announce it.....

Nope. Not a practical game.

Now, Hide and Seek, that's a good game. You can be go first, Trevor. Go hide. When the rest of us are done with this Game, we'll seek you.

I can sit a bunch of schools kids sitting around the lunch table. Eventually, one says "Oh, I just lost". Then everyone gets mad because they just lost.

Seconds of fun, I tell ya.

Just like the Otter election, you're secretly trying to win.

1st RULE: You do not think about The Game.
2nd RULE: You DO NOT think about The Game.
3rd RULE: If someone says "stop" or goes limp, taps out The Game is over.
4th RULE: Only 6,602,224,175 people to The Game.
5th RULE: One Game at a time.
6th RULE: No shirts, no shoes. (seems like this rule is universal)
7th RULE: The Game will go on as long as it has to.
8th RULE: If this is your first night with The Game, you HAVE to think.

It's been a while since I played The Game, but I might be in the mood to listen to it tonight at work.

Normally, I'd thumbnail that, but this thread deserves it.
