How To Play The Game (Mind Game)

You just lost if you're reading this page right now.The Game is estimated to have millions of players, despite not having any digital graphics, complicated scenarios or even very many rules.The Game is banned in some Internet forums where it spread like wildfire.The rules?The game isn't about The Game.There is a weird, challenging and frustrating world of The Game.

Step 1: There are three basic rules of the game.

The game is simple and complex.If you're still reading, you lost again.Everyone in the world is playing the Game, whether they know it or not.You lose the game if you think about it.This includes things like desperately trying not to think about the Game, or being tipped off by anyone else talking about losing the game.You lose if you think about it.You have to announce that you lost.It can be out loud on the internet or in other ways.The only way that the game is played is if you announce your losses.

Step 2: Give up the idea of winning.

Spreading the word about the game will prevent you from losing and make other people lose as well.You are going to lose if you are in the game to win.You're in the game to lose.

Step 3: Game psychology has a background.

Ironic processing describes the inverse relationship between a desire to avoid thoughts and the persistence of those thoughts.If you want to stop thinking about the game, you have to think about it more.The "white bear phenomenon" is sometimes called the "pink elephant phenomenon."The act of not thinking about something makes you think.In the first Ghostbusters movie, the Ghostbusters were told that whatever they thought of would come to destroy them.Someone thinks of the Stay-Puff'd marshmallows man, who arrives in monster form to destroy Manhattan despite attempts to clear their minds.

Step 4: Adding variations to the game will make it winnable.

Some people play the Game slightly differently, giving players a grace period after losing before they can lose again, or not being required to announce it for a certain period of time.This time can range from a few seconds to an hour.There are restrictions on how a loss can be announced.If you're playing with friends, make sure you use winnable rules.The Game will end when the British Prime Minister, President of the United States, or Pope say the Game is lost on national television, according to some.The Game can only be won if someone knocks the Pope's hat off.

Step 5: As much as possible, draw attention to the game.

The Game will be lost by every new person you tell.Carrying a sign that says "I lost The Game" is a good idea.Wear it in public as often as possible, explain the Game to people, and force them to discover and lose the game at the same time.There are only three rules in the game, and some Game forums frown upon this.Talking about the Game in certain areas is seen as annoying by some people.Discuss the game with caution.

Step 6: When you lose, announce it.

"I lost the game!"If you think about it, it will remind other people about the game and cause them to lose at the same time.At certain times, this will happen.You can either say it or be creative about it.

Step 7: Tell other players about the game.

If you start a game, keep it going as long as you can, and remind other people about it as often as possible.If you're in class, you should write and pass notes about the game if you get the chance.You won't get in trouble if you shout it out every 10 seconds.If someone isn't available to inform at the moment you lose, write a note and give it to them later, or put it in their locker through the slats.It is possible to do this to random people.When the teacher isn't looking, write on dry-erase boards or chalkboards with teacher permission.If you know the teacher won't mind, try to keep this to a minimum.Everyone will lose The Game if they look in your direction.There is an add in the classifieds.If you work on a school newspaper or other newsletter, you can incorporate a mention of the Game if you want to.

Step 8: You can post about the game online.

Messages about the Game can be found on message boards, chat rooms, and other online venues.The more people know about it, the more they lose.You can update your Facebook page with a simple message: "I just lost the game."You can title the emails "I lost the Game".Everyone on your contact list should be alert when you lose the game.

Step 9: Think about other things.

Try to stop thinking about the game within a certain amount of time.Depending on who you are playing with, you may have a set amount of time to stop thinking about the game.Ten minutes works the best and is considered the standard in many places, but it can be anywhere from a minute to an hour.Some places don't follow this rule.All you can do is make yourself think about other things because not- thinking about something isn't possible to do actively.Try to remember the lyrics to a rap song or recite a prayer ad infinitum.Try to remember all the lines in Caddyshack.Don't think about the game.If you can, start reading.Don't listen to what anyone else is saying.All you have to do is focus on doing something else and ignore what's happening around you.

Step 10: It's a good idea to avoid "triggers" as much as possible.

Try to steer clear of places that remind you of the Game or people that seem to have lost it.The thought process required to do this is likely to make you lose.

Step 11: Do not let your guard down.

Everyone has access to the knowledge of the Game.If you start sending out emails or text messages announcing your loss of The Game, expect others to do the same as well.It's best not to open it if it looks suspicious.If you're suspicious that an email might contain a reference to the Game, you lose.Good luck!
