Translating: Are you having fun?

¿Te estás divertiendo? (Spanish)
A rishulasuan? (Zapoteco, Teotitlan del Valle)

Translating: If it's not fun, it's not working.

Spanish: Si no es divertido, no está funcionando

If it's not fun, it's not working = Si no está divertido, no está funcionando #foamboard

Game Rules

1. If the game is rigged so you can't win, find another game or invent your own.
2. If you're not winning because you don’t know the rules, learn the rules.
3. If you know the rules but aren't willing to follow them, there's either something wrong with the game or you need to change something in yourself.
4. Don't play the game in a half-baked way. Either get all the way in or all the way out.
5. It shouldn't be necessary for others to lose in order for you to win. If others have to lose, re-evaluate the game's goals.
- Garry Hamilton (cited in Pronoia)
