Indisputably you have already lost ‘the game’, even without knowing anything of the game.. because you are, in some way thinking of the before mentioned game.
Now to understand what this game is.. and why you have infact now lost, you only need to know a few simple rules.
Everyone is playing the game, or depending where you hear about it; everyone who knows of the games existence is playing the game..
So if you go by the notion that you have been playing all along, this would have given you the best chance of winning for an extended period if time – of course, up until now.
Upon loosing the game, you must announce that you have in fact lost the game, hopefully in turn causing other people to realise that they have also lost the game!
Anyway.. have fun loosing!
I’m going to go back to not thinking about it.
