I lose

I recently started playing THE GAME with some of my co workers....

The Game is an ongoing mind game, the objective of which is to avoid thinking about The Game itself. Thinking about The Game constitutes loss, which, according to the rules of The Game, must then be announced. The Game is continuous—once a player stops thinking about The Game, they stop losing.

The Rules
1. Everyone in the world is playing The Game. (Sometimes narrowed to: "Everybody in the world who knows about The Game is playing The Game."[2], or alternatively, "You are always playing The Game.")

2. Whenever you think about The Game, you lose.

3. Losses must be announced (a statement such as "I just lost the game" is often used).

As a variation, some players allow a grace period after they have lost once, during which a player cannot lose The Game again or is not obligated to announce a loss. This can range from just a few seconds to half an hour.

Crap! I was on a roll! I LOST THE GAME!

My kids play this all the time, and it is fun to mess with them and make them lose.
