    let's give the free/better version a start aswell.
    Hello and welcome to RaceDepartment vs Wham!. To win the game, you have to make it to the start of 2016 without hearing the song Last Christmas by Wham!




    Rules:
    • You must make it to new year in your time zone, this is the end point.
    • The original Wham! version is the only one that eliminates you. If you hear a cover version, it doesn't count as an elimination.
    • When you hear the song, it counts as being Whammed! and you must post that you were eliminated and how.
    • No bait and trapping on this thread. Any links to the video not clearly marked on this thread mean an instant disqualification for the user linking.
    • You have until 1st December to sign up, but the competition starts from when you sign up.
    • Be honest. If you have been Whammed! don't hide it.
    • This thread is a safe zone. Listening to the song on this thread doesn't count as a Wham!ming. Use it to check if what you heard was the original version or not.
    Tips:
    • Don't trust anyone. If you tell someone you are doing this and they aren't, they will try to Wham! you.
    • If you do hear it start to play, you are out, so keep listening to see if it is the Wham! version or a cover, you could be lucky.
    • Radio stations, TV channels and shops are all danger zones, be prepared to turn it off/leave/cover your ears and go "lalalalalalala".
    • Turn the volume off before clicking links, there is no penalty for seeing the video.

    All in all, enjoy and don't get Whammed!

    you try and get to new year without hearing the song (unless you hear it in this thread, in that case it's fine)
    requires relatively little effort :D

    or here
    but yes sort of, on the radio, in the streets, basicly unless you hear it in this thread it counts as being Wham!med ;)
    (mostly beware of users who have been Wham!med already and will try to Wham! you too.. I mean Jim)

    Basically you do nothing for the game. But when you hear it somehow in real life (anywhere, this thread does not count as an exception to see if you heard the corret song...), just a part of it is enough, you have to be honest and write it down here - You got whammed and are out.

    just "survive" til 2016.

    Very passive game. But you can inrease chances if you avoid supermarkets, radio, advertising, public in general,... :p
