    Just posted it on a certain NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK website. Let's see what kind of reaction it gets.

    Well, it certainly has the 4chan seal of approval. Someone did say it was old and TobiasFunke like my dad (Scafl?!!).

    Thanks. Should I fancify it (add a bush texture to the green, put people in the maze, have a balloon at the start and a sprig of holly at the end) or is simple more effective when it comes to reading the message?

    So I guess you guessed the name of the design!

    i like it, except all the maze paths should connect and there should only be an entrance and exit. not multiple openings like you have though.

    Like this?

    I just Googled and discovered that Inkscape has an Extrude function. As soon as I get free time, I'm going to create a 3D maze and have some fun!

    I don't get the quote (but I'm not cool so it's ok), but design-wise I liked the dark green, as opposed to this more pixel-bush green.

    "The Game" is a game you play every day. Here are the rules.

    Though The Game is very simple, it can be difficult to comprehend initially. A new player usually has to lose The Game once or twice to fully understand it.

    Rules
    1) When you think of The Game, you lose The Game.
    2) When you lose The Game, you announce it to those around you.

    Game Play
    The first thing a new player needs to know is that when someone loses The Game (i.e. when someone thinks about The Game), game play temporarily stops for that person and for those around that person (since he must announce his game-loss aloud). The Game then restarts on a person-by-person basis when each person stops thinking about The Game. The Game never actually ends permanently.

    No One Wins!
    No one can ever technically win The Game. It could be argued that when one is not losing The Game (i.e. when someone is not thinking about The Game), they are winning The Game, but it still holds true that no one can ever definitively win The Game. You probably still don't understand The Game and how to play, so consider the example below.

    Example
    You have just learned the rules of The Game and how to play. Because you now know this, you are playing The Game, and will be playing The Game for the rest of your life. At this moment in time you are thinking about The Game, so you are losing The Game. Let's say you leave this site, start doing something else, and The Game leaves your mind. But then you start thinking about this site again and therefore you start thinking about The Game... that's a loss of The Game! Keep in mind that it doesn't matter what makes you think of The Game. Usually it is something completely random and unrelated to The Game that all of a sudden reminds you of The Game. This is what makes it so interesting and fun! If you have a game-loss story you'd like to share, do so in the stories section!

    The Bottom Line
    Any time you aren't thinking about The Game and then start thinking about The Game, you lose The Game. It's that simple.

    Enjoy The Game!

    Now you're beginning to understand why people reacted with "smuuuuuurf you! Ugh. Well played sir well played", and "UGH! I just stared at it for a minute to look at it and then I got it. Touche my friend."

    They had stopped thinking about The Game, but working out this little puzzle let them remember that they had just lost the game. Again. In fact, I'm losing it in a hardcore style right now.

    My friends and I play a lil different. When u lose there's no" time out" that way you make everyone lose by announcing your loss. Its more fun this way. Also we've put in place an actual way to win. The president and or high foreign dignitary must announce they lost the game for you to win.

    XKCD had this cartoon as Issue #391.

    Issue #391 of XKCD just makes everyone lose the game harder. But there's a Facebook group that says the game ends when someone like a Prime Minister announces they lost the game. Which is nice.

    No clue what it's about (too lazy to read comments. lol) but it looks like it says: Lost The Game

    Clever

    I personally like the first one better. it's more difficult to see and that'll cause people to stop and examine it before exclaiming, "Smurf! I just lost the game!"

    But if it's just on a shirt, it'll take people a bit to realize there's a message anyways :D

    I'd just like to thank Google SketchUp and a quiet day for this latest iteration of the design.

    Photobucket

    The borders around the girl with the balloon / balloon-bursting man won't be there on the actual design. I just need to put it into Inkscape and vectorize this bad boy...

    I think I should wait to see if the one I submitted isn't taken. Because I like this one a LOT more (resized for 15" by 19" dimensions).

    Slight design change. Gun: no.

    Freddy Kruger: oh yes.
