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?
There is no suggestion that you can only play the game once.
There is also no explanation to the number of people needed to play the game.
Given these I would assume that I could not lose the game (isolating myself with something to occupy me and ensuring before I do so that someone else playing in the same game as me will remember the game before I do). If this constitutes winning then I do. As far as the others playing are concerned I will be the last to lose. I ofcourse, will lose the minute I realise / hear of this, but until that point I will presumably win?
Even ignoring the number of people issue, there will always be someone who has not thought of the game for the longest, and who presumably at that time is winning?
