    This is a game shamefully ripped off GTPlanet. The aim of the game is to make it to 2014 without hearing any of the song Last Christmas by Wham!

    This is a rather popular Christmas song, so keep your wits about you.

    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 are out if you hear any part of the songs, no matter how small. If you hear even half a second, you're out. As I said in the first post, if you do hear it, keep listening and hope it is a cover.
