The "Twice" game

#1
Cut and pasted from another thread in the int cell.

Does anyone else remember the twice game? I was introduced to it by a darksider in 2000 so i'm sure it wasn't just our little circle that did it. or is it still going strong?

See, good things do come out of the dark side occasionally ;) was certainly good for morale anyway.

Is the word 'wah' universal?
Back in the day, we used to do something similar, along these lines -

"No way! Guess what!"
"What?"
"Sem! Ha ha ha!"

The operative word being 'what.' The idea was to get some moog to rise to the bait, and once they've given a genuinely surprised and intrigued "What?", slap them down with "Sem!"

Thanks to ARRSE I have not only remembered the above, but now armed with "Wa'ah!" I can confuse and amuse everyone in my office. Cheers ARRSE!
there was another one which became dangerously irritating to the point that we were banned from "playing" it as it was interfering with work...

the idea was you had to get someone to repeat exactly the same thing they had just said. the victor would then say "twice" or - the more low key version - hold up two fingers in a V for victory.

e.g. "anyone coming to scoff?" "what?" "anyone coming to scoff?" "TWICE!"

the only way you could avoid it (apart from changing your choice of words) was to drop in the word "obviously" at any point in the sentence. e.g. "anyone coming obviously to scoff?" this would often be the penultimate word in a sentence, as you realised just in time that you were saying the same thing over. this would lead to much sucking of teeth and make you realise just how close you had come...

of course it got silly. and subconscious. COS or someone would say "pardon" and you would find yourself sticking the word "obviously" at random into sentences. it took over your working life, as you didnt want to get caught off-guard and inadvertently give someone a win. briefings, O groups, prayers, nothing was sacred. if you could get someone to fall for it in the presence of senior officers, it was bigger. "say again over" on the net was not always about shite comms.


a few months after being introduced to this wonderfully childish game, i was on the phone home. my mum innocently asked me "why do you keep saying 'obviously'"?


when i realised that this could be a wah, my head exploded. :)

Best one I ever heard was cleaning rifles after a long day on the ranges.. loads of people waa-ing eachother as they clean away with much joviality..

Then someone pipes up.. "What's a waa?"

Poor new girl replies, "Well.. it's when you ask .......... "

All, "WAAAAAAA!!!"

Most amusing. :D

Never heard of the twice game though.. cant see it catching on in this office either. We're all deaf and mumble all the time. :?

i must admit it kind of took on a mind of its own. there wasnt a blatant subversive attempt by our newly-arrived darksider to introduce it... he just kept doing it to people in the office, or you'd hear him chatting to his old darkside friends about dungeons and dragons, what it's like to have windows, that sort of thing... the occasional "twice" or "obviously" would be dropped in.... and eventually you start getting conscious of it, and eventually retaliating.

and there goes the neighbourhood.

we had a good bunch in that office, morale was high and i don't think we brought about the downfall of the government or anything from doing it. :)

I remember this Twice game being de rigeur in one of my Sections some years ago. I found it easiest to ignore it and pretend to be completely unaware. But I know that some of the chaps found it dashed amusing :)
