The Game game is a â€œsocial phenomenon and an anti-memory game, the object of which is to forget its existenceâ€. 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.
Thereâ€™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 opponentsâ€™ 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).
