ok very surprised that I did not see this anywhere in the archive of debates... many people know about the game and with knowing about the game, everyone who read this just lost it. My question is"Can you win at the game?" or rewording,"How do you not loose the game?"

ok so what is the game you ask?
There are five rules to the game, they are as follows:

* Rule number 1: You are playing The Game.
* Rule number 2: Whenever you think about The Game, you lose.
* Rule number 3: Loss must be announced.
* Rule number 4: Anyone who asks about the game MUST be told thus bringing them into the game
* Rule number 5: There is no break period in between losing the game…once you forget, the game starts again

Everyone is playing the game, they may just not know it, yet. So, if you lose the game around someone who does not know about the game, and they ask what it is, you have to tell them about the game, and thus induct them into our society.

You are now playing The Game.

WARNING! PLAY ONLY IF YOU INTEND TO LOSE A LOT. FOR THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SOMEONE THERE TO MAKE SURE YOU LOSE THE GAME. P.S. I LOSE.

I think I'll take this one just for the fun of it.

Ok, so the topic as I see it is: There is no way to lose the "game".
I have to prove that there is a way not to lose the "game," and my opponent has to prove that there is no way to no lose the game.

1. The game is continuous. My opponent says this himself. You only lose the game if you think about it. Therefore, every time you don't think about it, you are not losing. I win.

2. There is no conclusion for the "game," so we have to say at some point someone wins. Seeing as there are only 2 states to the game, losing and not losing, the not losing part of it must be winning, since losing is not winning. So every moment you don't lose, you win.

Thank you. I have fulfilled my burden. I win.

SImple. PRO voted for himself and CON voted for himself. There's your mystery.

Because no one voted. There are two ways people were interpreting it. One was that him forfeiting made it so that he did not think about the game, and therefore did not lose. However, the debate isn't who would lose the game, it was whether or not the game is possible to lose. Read the arguments.

technically he won because he wasn't thinking about the game in 4 rounds, or playing. Therefore, you were the only one playing the game therefor, you lose. Oh and i lose too.
