(n), a tougher or more intense iteration of an idea.

The term comes from video games, in which there are often harder difficulty settings (or "hard modes") than the standard gameplay, intended for players looking for a challenge.

In MMORPGs, "hard modes" are triggered versions of boss encounters that cause them to become more difficult than usual, but offer better rewards.

The Game, on a higher difficulty level. The same basic rules apply:

1: By knowing of the game, you start playing.
2: You can never win, only lose.
3: You lose by thinking about The Game.
4: Upon losing the game, you must announce "I lost The Game", bringing every other player down with you.
5: Once the knowledge of The Game is passed to you, you are always playing.

The Alterations Include:

1: Upon loosing The Game, you only have 15 minutes in which to think about it freely.
2: If anyone asks about The Game, you must explain it to then in Hard Mode Rules.
3: If, at any point, you see/think about/hear the number 47, you loose, regardless of any other rules in play.
