For questions about recreational activities, commonly but not always involving competitive elements. Compare [sports].

A species may play games for entertainment purposes. Games can be highly physical (in which case they are ), or primarily intellectual; often (but not always) have competitive elements; and may be based on ability or luck of individuals or groups of individuals.

Questions using this tag should not merely feature games as a side element but should focus on the design of a game or its societal impacts.
