    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

    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. /:

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

          Did I hear of this once? Which means I won because I didn't think about it for ages... it sounds cool/lame though

          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.

              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.

                  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.

                  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!

                  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?)

                      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

                          Jan. 7th, 2010: 4chan has ended The Game, and now a new stage in the history of humanity can begin.

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

                                DANGIT, I LOST. Dx I hadn't thought about it since I read about it yesterday:
                                http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheGame

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