Then it's really crap because I didn't think about a game at all while I was reading the clues and it didn't take me very long. So not difficult and not a time sink.
What about when you eventually read through all the clues and came to the words "The Game"?
EDIT: This was more aimed at people already playing The Game, an in-joke if you will, rather than people new to it, so I'm sorry if it confused you. Though I hope if you do ever think of The Game again, you feel like telling someone you lost it.
