    Post help!

    I'd like to know if there's any idiom or slang phrase in English used to express the idea of " game over".

    Thank you!

    Hey @sofia28,
    Actually...game over itself is an idiom.
    it means...finished, complete;
    Eg. The chance is gone If you've signed the contract, it's game over. You can't change it.
