shit. that means I lost the game to. :evil:


Damn you lrdofbricks. I thought Shaeph was only talking about the game Bonn-o-Tron posted until you said you lost it, too. Now you made ME lose it.

It's okay though. I had to restart only a week or two ago because I lost. Lame.

I don't play The Game anymore because some people in my school caught on, and thought it would be funny to put posters about it up around the school. One of them also yelled "THE GAME" at me and my friends everytime he saw one of us.

Needless to say, I've had The Game ruined for me.

No worries: You just WON the game.

Some years ago I considered getting a laminated card to carry with me at all times or, for preference, a mallet with the words bevelled into the violent end.

It goes like this: two or more geeks are sitting in a room. Roleplayers, wargamers, (computer)gamers and board game enthusiasts are particularly appropriate subsets of geek to have present.

There is, unbelievably, a lull in the conversation - not even Call of Duty XXII or Warhammer are being discussed. One specially smug geek pipes up, "I just lost the game." The rest of the geeks emit an almost pavlovian response of d'ohs, assertions of questionable parentage and other groans of dismay. Smug geek leans back, confident that despite the fact they will never know the touch of a woman (or gender of choice) that they have asserted their geek cred in a manner only a decade out of date.

The principle is - the game is something you do not think about. To think about it is to lose, but you can spread the fail by admitting you lost, causing other people to lose.

For the first few months it is an endearing past time. After a year it gets old. After a decade it occupies the same position in my personal pantheon of distaste as those people whom think it is funny to play an imaginary game with empty drinks glasses in bars, where every move is punctuated by increasingly lengthy mock musings and typically a nonsense word like 'bok' (how 'ZANY!') as opposed to the correct and right-thinking response of making a person eat the glass they have just bokked. Moved.

Damn.
CONGRATULATIONS - you just WON The Game FOREVER. Or you can carry on being a humourless nugget - your call.

Not only geeks play it. It also doesn't get old if you go for months at a time without thinking of it.

What's so wrong about playing the game? It's not like it takes up any time. Sure it's lame, but it's the same as you thinking about any random thing that pops up in your head.

Yeah, The Game stopped being funny a while ago.

Well, there are some people (like those that I mentioned) who still find it hilarious to make everyone lose.

Clearly, you do not understand the concept of the game.
