That's especially true in student houses! Here, even the vacuum cleaner blows instead of sucks! Still, at least I finally have an internet connection... HOORAY!

Oh, didn't you hear? The Game got called off in about 2009. It was on 4chan, appropriately enough, since 4chan is where memes go to die.

Nope, not buying it. The only way to properly kill a meme is for it to show up in a forwarded email from your Nana.

Looking at their homepage, that'll be a no then - Warwick apparently.

Nothing wrong with Warwick, of course. I've been to Warwick Uni campus, and it was rather nice. Bizarrely though, it's not actually near Warwick, and rather closer to Coventry...

It's IN Coventry last time I checked. Or Leamington Spa of course.

It took me a while to find this thread again. (I used "site:h2g2.com "I lost the game"" to find it on Google, as h2g2's search wasn't very helpful.)

Not only did I find The Game again, I also noticed a 13 year old instance of me using "to" instead of "too". smiley - doh

I thought it had been at least 3 years since I last lost the game, but I see it's only been about a year and a half.

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

I never lost the game before, but apparently I just did right now.

Yep.


I thought we had a full entry on The Game. Every time I lose it, I search the Edited Guide for it but find it's not there. Wikipedia has an entry on it though.

Funny, after posting post 53 above I'd completely forgotten the game till today's postings.

This time I make a wish and a resolution.

Yesterday, after I lost the game, I found this vlog post where the host tries to explain the deeper connotations of The Game.
