Rules of the Game
To play the #commonalitygame you must first become a player by having a shirt. To win the game you give your shirt away.
You can become a player in two ways. Buy in or be gifted in.
To buy in *order a shirt of your color choice and size. We will send you one. Congratulations, you just became a player in the game. Once you have the shirt take a picture of yourself in the shirt and share to instagram either in stories or a post telling the rest of the world you are playing the #commonalitygame. Use the hashtag #commonalitygame and @daviaking in the post/story to let her know you are playing, and to let the rest of the world know this game is happening!
Now wear the shirt as if it were your own. Take care of the shirt, enjoy the shirt, and put your love energy into the shirt. At this point while you are out and about wearing the shirt anyone may approach you and ask,
"Can I have your shirt?"
At this moment you get to experience the gift of giving and give this new player your shirt. The giver just won the game! Congratulations winner! Take a photo with the receiver of the shirt and share to instagram in a post/story, using the #commonaliygame and @daviaking letting her know you just won. She will randomly pick from those who are playing and gift another shirt to (and thus enter you back into the game since she sees you know how to play).
To be **gifted in, spot someone wearing the shirt and ask them,
"Can I have your shirt?"
You have just given this current player the gift of giving as well as the chance to win.
Take a picture with the giver of the shirt and share to instagram, showing you are now a player. Make sure to use #commonalitygame and let @daviaking know you are now playing in your post/story. This is how the game will spread through your sharing on social media.
Give the shirt away when asked. "Can I have your shirt?" This is the magic password.
Once you have given your shirt away, you just won the game. If you want to play again go ahead! There will be many winners to the game. But Davia will win over and over again as she will be the biggest giver.
Buy in creates two new players in the game. To be gifted in only one. It is better to buy in to help the game flourish across humanity.
* For each buy in Davia gives away another shirt. By buying into the game you end up giving the gift of giving twice. Once for the shirt you receive and give off your own back (when that special day comes) and also you just allowed Davia (game creator) to gift another shirt off her own back.
**If you are gifted in you can keep the shirt for 24 hours before you gift it away. Make sure to wear it in order to both feel the love already put into it and add your own. This is more than a game, it is a social experiment. The intention is create waves of love rippling out across humanity in the form of a shirt.
Why would I pay $40 to give away my shirt?
This is a social experiment to see if we can create more loving energy into the world. This is not about money. This is about experience, positive emotion, and connection.
This just seems like a great marketing tactic to get us to buy her apparel. Where is the money going?
For every shirt bought Davia can give away one more. It is a self sustaining project. Davia makes no profit, she is more concerned with energy than money. As she sees capitalism is destroying our planet and we may not have much more time to exist here if we don't make some drastic changes. This game is her "walking her talk" on how to add some love energy to ripple out throughout the planet and to show us another paradigm to exist in rather than just living for money.
Sounds like a grand plan, does she really think this will work?
I really like my shirt, Do I have to give it away?
Yes, as long as they asked, "Can I have your shirt?" Do not enter the game unless you are willing to play. The game is about experiencing the gift of giving. What that feels like. You can only experience it by doing it. Give it away or don't play. If you feel attached to it this is a good reminder for you about impermanence. How nothing lasts forever. And we must enjoy what we have while we got it!
They didn't ask, "Can I have your shirt?" Do I have to give it away?
No. They must use this phrase. Ask them for the magic password if they don't use the phrase. This is how the universe works. First through thought, then through voice vibration as we ask for what we want. You must say, "Can I have your shirt?" for it to be released to you. Do not give the shirt under any other circumstances to ensure each player understands the rules and keeps the game moving.
I just received my shirt and someone asked me for it, do I have to give it to them?
No, if it hasn't been 24 hours yet. Respond kindly by saying, "I need to put my energy into it still". You get to keep the shirt for a minimum of one day (24 hours) before giving it away. This will ensure that people don't get it from you the same moment you recieve it and for you to have enough time to feel the energy already put into it and to add your own. The intention of this game will be a wave of love energy experienced through the wearing of the shirt, and the gift of giving. You can tell them they can "buy in" as well if they really want to play right now!
Do I have to post to instagram if I get the shirt?
Yes, in either a post or in stories using the hashtag #commonalitygame and @daviaking. This is how awareness of the game will spread. If not it may end with you (you may think yes this is what I want so I can keep it forever) and again you are reminded of impermanence and that nothing lasts forever. Participate in the game or don't become a player. The game will work based on YOUR participation. Otherwise it will fall apart and Davia will lose all her money she has already put into this to get it launched. Don't let her and the rest of humanity down by being a selfish jerk face.
I bought a different shirt design of Davia's from another year. Do I have to give that away?
No. The commonality game only refers to this one design, not anything else Davia has made before or will make in the future of a different design.
I gave my shirt away now I'm walking around without a shirt what should I do?
Be smarter. If you are playing the game dress appropriate knowing at any time someone can ask you for your shirt. Be prepared with another shirt underneath. If it is freezing outside and this was keeping you warm and you don't have another way to keep yourself from dying in the cold. Ask the person who asked you to trade shirts so you don't die. If they refuse then you don't have to give it to them. They lack empathy and are not ready to enter the game.
The shirt stinks, What should I do?
Wash it. Duh. Take care of it like any other piece of clothing you own.
When will the game end?
When humanity treats each other better by realizing we are one. Until then Davia will keep adding new products into the game for people to give away to remind us that I am you and you are me.
