What a game is

Posted: May 8, 2010 in Uncategorized

Please forgive my academic indulgence:

Flow is a feeling of escape and timelessness

Experiencing flow is fun

Play is an activity in the pursuit of fun

A toy is an artifact to facilitate play

A puzzle provides goals to facilitate play

A game establishes relationships through play

Some puzzles are toys

Some games are puzzles

Fin.
