Point of Discovery/Informant Bio

Bec Noller is one of my best friends from home in Australia. She is 21 years old, she went to high school at Rowville Secondary College. She was born in Ferntree Gully, Victoria, Australia. Bec has just graduated in nursing from Deakin University and now works at Royal Melbourne Children's Hospital.

Context

The item of folklore was collected via WhatsApp. Because Bec lives in Australia it is the easiest way for us to communicate. When the item of folklore is being used in context it takes place between a group of friends and can happen anywhere at any time. The Game can be played in person or over social media messengers, The Game also doesn't have an ending point.

Text

" Okay, so... the way "The Game" works is, you get a group of people and you

decideyou are going to play "The Game". The objective of "The Game" is to not

talk about "The Game"---hahahah it's hard to explain!--- If you think about "The

Game", you've lost! and you have to inform everyone in the group that you have

lost which then makes them think about "The Game", this means they have now

lost too. "The Game" then resets and it just keeps going until someone loses

again. We've gone months without losing "The Game!"."

Texture

It's hard to tell over text message but Bec finds it a little bit difficult to describe how to play "The Game". She laughs at her attempt to describe it as clearly as possible. She uses a lot of exclamation points too.
