What Does GGWP Mean?

GGWP means "Good Game, Well Played". The abbreviation GGWP is often seen in the form #GGWP, i.e., with a hashtag (especially on Twitter). It is also commonly seen in the abbreviated versions #GP and #WP.

GGWP is typically used at the end of an online game to congratulate other players for their efforts. The term can be used by either the winner or loser of the game. It contrasts with GLHF (Good Luck, Have Fun), which is often used by gamers at the start of an online game.

Of note, GGWP can also be used to congratulate someone for a shrewd move in life. For example:
  • Bill: I'm taking Sarah for a romantic weekend to ensure I get a pass for our fishing weekend.
