Welcome to the WhyWePlayGames WikiEdit

"Life is a game." This has been a fundamental teaching of countless mystics, philosophers, artists, poets, and other cultural leaders. But seldom has the question been asked "what exactly is a game?"

Games are not all fun. They are not all competitive. They do not all take place on a field or board. They do not all involve chance or require skill. So what do we mean when we call life a game? When we call "the system" a game? When we call our love affairs a game?

In this wiki, we will explore what games are, why we play them, and how we can begin to see life and culture through the lens of gameplay.
