A game is a set of guidelines, whether explicit or implicit, for structuring play. Recreational sex is, by this definition, a game. That’s fine with me. I have little interest in definitions narrower than that. I only use those when I’m trying to construct a particular kind of game. Why limit yourself artificially unless you’re purposefully trying to?
