Have you ever heard of The Game? Basically as soon of you think of it you lose and have to announce so. So in writing this I also lost the game.

All I really wanted to know was whether you've heard of it before. It's quite strange hearing someone randomly say they lost the game, followed by another bunch of people saying the same thing.

The Game on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Game_(mind_game))

Also, I presume this goes in this forum, if not please move it.

Never really heard of it till now xD. It seems rather pointless especially since it being impossible to win :/.

Yes, by reading this I have lost the game as well Dx.

This game seems to be spreading like wildfire all over the place. I've heard about it from loads of different people. It's really stupid, though. /:

Thank you, xkcd~

Gonna toss this in the internet forum.

The game where the purpose of it is to not think about the game or you lose?

I don't play (although, technically everyone is playing) but I know all of my friends obssess about it lol

May 10th, 2010, 10:52 AM
Well, this sucks. I lose D;
I don't get why people are so into this though.

May 10th, 2010, 11:17 AM
Did I hear of this once? Which means I won because I didn't think about it for ages... it sounds cool/lame though :P

May 10th, 2010, 1:01 PM
I've known about it for four and a half years... but it's only ever brought up during conversational lulls, so I often forget I'm playing.

May 10th, 2010, 1:16 PM
i just lost the game.

yup, i've heard about it
my math class used to keep bringing it up everyday, but now it's faded for us
i haven't thought about it for a while though

Never heard of it actually, it sounds really annoying.

May 10th, 2010, 2:48 PM
I've known about it for a very long time. I refuse to partake in it, and hope to get it out of my mind forever... Dx. It is extremely annoying.

The game (which I just lost) is really old. Known about it for years; surprised many of you haven't heard of it.

May 10th, 2010, 7:05 PM
Huh, the game was spoken of quite a lot at my school last year, but it eventually fell into obscurity. This is the first I've heard of this in a while. Incidentally, I just lost.

May 10th, 2010, 7:12 PM
pretty sure I made a thread on the game in OVP once and it stayed there, lol.

Um. Yeah I lose the game not as much as I used to. Only once a day now maybe!

May 10th, 2010, 7:18 PM
I remember when people used to abuse this meme and use in just about every sentence as a attempt to be funny.

It's dead, so it should stay dead. :(

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

(Is that picture broken, or is it just me?)

May 10th, 2010, 8:49 PM
I only heard of The Game this year suprisingly ^^; It was funny at first, but now it's kinda faded into the small inside joke area =P Sometimes people use it as an akward silence breaker XD

May 10th, 2010, 8:59 PM
Bah, this thread has made me lose three times today. I hate it. :(

Oh, and A good way to win the game :D (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&feature=related)

Jan. 7th, 2010: 4chan has ended The Game, and now a new stage in the history of humanity can begin. (http://meta.filesmelt.com/downloader.php?file=245245.PNG)

Watch out, language. Imo, it's worth it.

DANGIT, I LOST. Dx I hadn't thought about it since I read about it yesterday:

But now I'm not the only one who lost! Yaay!

June 8th, 2010, 2:06 PM
We all are going to lose the game!

It's impossible to win. I know what's really behind the joke, but I can't explain it here, it's not apropriate.

June 9th, 2010, 6:30 AM
Damn. I lost the game.

People kept announcing it in a chatroom I use, and then someone taught me the rules. D: We're all trapped, forever. D:

June 9th, 2010, 6:36 AM
of course by posting that you have lost the game and the worldy rule of 30 seconds but of course it takes more than that for someone to realize you lost the game everybody reading this loses the game and by that logic i have just lost the game and have given cause for others to lose the game so i have lost the game 30 times giving how many times this will be read.

June 9th, 2010, 7:07 AM
:D I've already won The Game and have the ability to make others win at will, so I don't ever have to worry about losing.

Isn't "The Game"

A game with a little tiny elephant or something and you like, jump over stuff and all that?

Then it IS impossible. XD

I don't know what you've been eating or drinking recently but, the game is a mind game which you lose by thinking about it. There is no way to win.
Although some people have found loopholes...

In writing this I lost the game 3 times.

I think you mean Achievement Unlocked, a wonderful little game I discovered this very day. The Game is something very different.
