Game, You Lost The
The Game is an Internet meme in the form of a mind game, the objective of which is to avoid thinking about The Game itself. Thinking about The Game constitutes a loss, which, according to the rules of The Game, must be announced each time it occurs. It is impossible to win the game; players can only attempt to avoid losing for as long as possible.
This game is also played on #aber but only in a very specific way (played as per the official rules the game is obviously a bit beneath most channel members). One only loses the game when one thinks of Harriet Harman or Ed Balls. Channel members may cause other channels to think of Harriet Harman and/or Ed Balls even if they weren't already thinking of Harriet Harman or Ed Balls simply by saying "you lost the game". Thinking of Harriet Harman and/or Ed Balls is immensely horrible and so this process is more often than not used as a mild punishment for failure on channel.
