• Rule 1: You are playing The Game. You, along with everyone else in the world, always is, always has been, and always will be playing The Game. Neither awareness nor consent is required to play.
• Rule 2: Every time you think about The Game, you lose. Loss is temporary; as soon as you forget about The Game you stop losing. The objective of The Game is to forget that it exists. Good luck.
• Rule 3: Loss of The Game must be announced. Every time you think about The Game, and hence lose, you must say so.
Some say the game will be over when the Prime Minister of the UK announces that “The Game is Up”.
