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.

                                    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.
