The Game (Posted on 2006-12-14) Difficulty: 2 of 5
There is a game which is played by those unlucky enough to be duped into it called "The Game". There are 3 simple rules to The Game:

1. Knowledge of The Game is the only thing required to play it (whoops, shouldn't have read this!!).
2. If you think about The Game, you lose.
3. If you lose The Game, you must announce it to anyone else who also plays.

Can you ever win The Game?

Perhaps you could win the game without knowing it:

If rule number 1 implies you must know about the game -- as opposed to knowing the game is underway -- you could be an unknowing participant in the game.

If everyone else is aware the game is underway they could all announce their loss at the same time.

You would then become the sole winner even though you didn't know you were playing the game until it ended.
