Wikipedia defines “Game” as:

A game is a structured form of play,

It usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes used as an educational tool.[1] Games are distinct from work, which is usually carried out for remuneration, and from art, which is more often an expression of aesthetic or ideological elements. However, the distinction is not clear-cut, and many games are also considered to be work (such as professional players of spectator sports or games) or art (such as jigsaw puzzles or games involving an artistic layout such as Mahjongsolitaire, or some video games).

Games are sometimes played purely for entertainment,

sometimes for achievement or reward as well. They can be played alone, in teams, or online; by amateurs or by professionals. The players may have an audience of non-players, such as when people are entertained by watching a chess championship. On the other hand, players in a game may constitute their own audience as they take their turn to play. Often, part of the entertainment for children playing a game is deciding who is part of their audience and who is a player.

Key components of games are goals, ruleschallenge, and interaction.

Games generally involve mental or physical stimulation, and often both. Many games help develop practical skills, serve as a form of exercise, or otherwise perform an educationalsimulational, or psychological role. *

Attested as early as 2600 BC,[2][3] games are a universal part of human experience and present in all cultures.

A DEVICE FOR NEW IDEAS

The Device

In a movie, Brad Pitt and George Clooney are nuclear scientists. About ten minutes into the movie, Brad Pitt’s son wins the high school science project with a proton decelerator.  The same day, feverishly at work, Pitt and Clooney discover the world is going to implode in ten hours. After serious end of the world earthquakes, tidal waves, and destruction, the device that saves the world is the Pitt proton decelerator.

All movies have devices.

Sometimes, as in  this movie, they are physical objects. Sometimes they are emotional situations where love saves, blinds, or binds. And sometimes they  mental devices, for instance, a detective movie or a movie like The Sixth Sense which depend on your cognition of the plot.

Devices awaken people from their mechanical routines.

Some are physical. The master whops his stick on the disciple’s noggin. Some are emotional, as in prayer by identifying with love, compassion, and forgiveness—by opening the heart to your savior, Jesus or Buddha or God—you obtain those qualities. Some are mental. What are mental devices?

Thought Experiments.

The time track of philosophy goes back before the Greeks and uses a special device called a “thought experiment.” Early philosophers such as Xenophon developed the thought experiment that if a stone fence existed at the end of the universe and you could shoot an arrow over that wall, then the universe was infinite. Also thought experiments appear in the context of science. Einstein sitting in his office–a clerk daydreaming–developed the concept of relativity by a thought experiment. Light was time. He did this by the thought experiment that by moving faster and faster on a train away from a light source—this created relative conditions.

A Thought experiment Which Awakens?

There are many. Here’s one: You are in a dark hallway. You can touch the walls and feel a texture and the rug gives way a bit under the weight of your feet. Yet, it’s very dark, until you see light at the end from a skylight. You look up through the glass and  see dark clouds. Right then . . . the clouds part and sunlight streams into your mind.

Can a game wake up people? 

When developing new products, solutions and ideas, a person needs to wake up. We learn by doing. Play our game.

What is a game?

Is life a Game?

At wisdomgame we play the game of life.
                                    Is Life a Game?

What are the conditions of a game?

The factors which make a game, which is a contest of person against person or team against team. A game consists of freedoms, barriers and purposes, and there is a necessity in a game to have an opponent or an enemy.  Also there is a necessity to have problems, and enough individuality to cope with a situation.

Do you have a purpose?

To live life fully, then, one must have, in addition to “something to do,” a higher purpose: and this purpose, to be a purpose at all, must have counter-purposes or purposes which prevent it from occurring. If a person lacks problems, opponents and counter-purposes to his own, he will invent them.

The Elements of Games Are

  • A game consists of freedoms, barriers, and purposes.
  • One’s team must prevent being damaged, and deliver and effect upon the other team or opponent.
  • A game should have a space, that is, a playing field.
  • A game is played in the same time continuum. That is, in the present.
  • A game must have something which is to be won.
  • A game has tone. It must include or exclude things or others.
  • Games occur only when there is intention opposing intention, purpose opposing purpose.
  • Without a game life is dull.
  • Being in a game is better than not having any game.
  • Games are basic mechanisms for continuing attention.
