  • To know of the Game is to play the Game.

    The object of the Game is to forget that you are playing the Game.

    If you remember the Game, you lose the Game.

    When you lose the Game, you must announce this, and explain the rules to anyone who asks about it, thereby infecting them with the Game.

    When you have lost the Game, you then have a grace period (~30 minutes) in which to forget the Game, at which point you resume playing the Game once more as outlined above.
