If You Have Seen A Cybertruck In Real Life You Have Already Lost At Cyberstruck

What’s better than a collective game? One that doesn’t require sticks or balls or zambonis to play, but is fully distributed — happening everywhere, always, for everyone, like that time Pokemon Go ushered in exactly two weeks of what felt like world peace before the game broke. Now there’s a new collective game in town, and this one’s got an automotive bent: All you have to do is not spot a Tesla Cybertruck.

Bluesky user Charles Louis Richter developed the game, titled Cyberstruck, around a simple concept: If you see a Cybertruck, you lose. Only trucks that are actually out in the world count, however — no display models, dealerships, or car carriers.

I, somehow, have not managed to lose Cyberstruck yet. The lone Cybertruck I’ve spotted in person was on the floor of the Gowanus Tesla store, and I only got the briefest glimpse as I rode past on my bike. Some other New York-based Jalops have lost Cyberstruck by now, but here in Brooklyn we seem to be blissfully free of the stainless steel eyesores. Well, my part of Brooklyn anyway. I’m sure Williamsburg is replete with them.


If you see a Cybertruck out there on the roads, I’m sorry to be the one to tell you — you’ve lost Cyberstruck. If not, well, it’s likely only a matter of time until you’re out too. Eventually, the Cybertruck comes for us all.
