The 'Infinity' Game:Add 1, then say a username.

Hello Everybody,

This is a infinity game and the interest of it is in the 'Infinity'.
Anybody knows the limit of this game?take"Add 1, then say a username"as an example.
(Because the spam filter don't let me send links,I should post the rules here.Sorry for the inconvenience.
So, if it is a multiple of 3, say bobbym.
If multiple of 5, say anonimnystefy.
If multiple of 7, say n872yt3r.
If multiple of 11, say Agnishom.
If a multiple of 13, say Nehushtan if you are a boy.
If a girl, say mathgogocart.

Example :
1
2
bobbym
4
anonimnystefy
6
n872yt3r
8
9
10
Agnishom
12
Nehushtan)
So,How can I calculate the final limit(means that everybody need to speak a username)?

Hi auyeungyat;

I am not following you. What is the question?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Let's see if I can understand what you want. Do you just want to use those 6 members names?

Re: The 'Infinity' Game:Add 1, then say a username.

So what you are asking is what name would be for infinity?

No.I am talking that at somewhere near infinity…(like that: )

You will have to be more precise than that. Infinity is not a number.

Re: The 'Infinity' Game:Add 1, then say a username.

How about if we redo the rules.  Start at 2, the first prime number.  Choose a username for the #2.
The next poster will use the next counting number and if the number is a prime number then they
choose a username for it, but if the number is a composite number like 4 or 6, then they post all the
prime names that multiply to get that number 4 or 6, e.g.  Does that sound fun??

Hi John;

Two different things. The OP wanted a definite answer, which is not possible to provide.
