My experiment with The Game

So my two good friends (Ben and Ben) and I are all players of The Game, which can be referenced below:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Game_(game)

Essentially, there are only three rules:

  1. Knowledge of The Game is the only thing required to play it.
  2. Thinking of The Game causes a player to lose.
  3. A losing player must announce the loss.

So I’m trying a little experiment with one Ben where I am systematically trying to associate Adam Phillips, one of his favorite animators, with The Game, therefore causing him to think of The Game when he thinks of Mr. Phillips, which, judging by his blog, is quite often. I’ll let you know how it goes. I’m still devising a strategy for other Ben, who best watch his mental back without thinking about why he’s watching his mental back.

Man, I love The Game.

PS – In case you’re wondering, I lost and then devised this strategy immediately after so this didn’t cost me a loss.
