  • Bernard Suits

    To play a game is to attempt to achieve a specific state of aairs [prelusory goal], using only means permitted by rules

    [lusory means], where the rules prohibit use of more ecient in favour of less ecient means [constitutive rules],

    and where the rules are accepted just because they make possible such activity [lusory attitude].

  • Eric Zimmerman

    A game is a system in which players engage in an artificial conflict, defined by rules, that results in a quantifiable

    outcome.

  • Jesper Juul

    A game is a rule-based system with a variable and quantifiable outcome, where dierent outcomes are

    assigned dierent values, the player exerts eort in order to influence the outcome, the player feels emotionally

    attached to the outcome, and the consequences of the activity are negotiable.
