GGWP means "Good Game, Well Played." It is used to congratulate someone after any sort of game (e.g., a sports match, a board game or, especially, an online game), as well as more generally for having made a shrewd move in life. In gaming, it is typically used at the end of an online match to congratulate other players for their efforts. For example:

  • Sam: I nearly had you there!
  • Ali: Yes, GGWP.
  • Lee: GGWP!
  • Robin: Nah, you thrashed me. You must spend hours playing this thing.
  • Chris: I've arranged for Jo to cover for me on Saturday. Now I've got the whole weekend off.
  • Ali: GGWP!

GGWP is often seen in the form #GGWP, i.e., with a hashtag. It is also commonly seen in the abbreviated versions #GG and #WP. It contrasts with GLHF (Good Luck, Have Fun), which is often used by gamers at the start of an online game.
