Abbreviation meaning ‘good game’. Used as parting words exchanged at the end of a competitive game or match as a gesture of good sportsmanship. ‘GGWP’ (good game, well played) is also used. Due to this abbreviation being synonymous with a game’s end, it is often used by spectators to indicate a situation, action or a move where a win of a particular player is obvious, e.g. ‘This attack just wiped all the blue player’s forces, that’s a GG’. It can also be used to taunt players while a game is still in progress as an implication that their win is assured. Insulting variations, such as ‘GGEZ’ (good game, easy) can similarly be used to imply the opposing player is unskilled.
