The Game has found you. As you read this you are becoming part of it.
This Game is different. You are not sure how far it goes, but you play anyway. And you let it play with you. It makes you comfortably uncomfortable. The players are different every night and therefore The Game is different every night. You discover more only by playing. Let’s not waste time, because
You are part of The Game.
