Chapter One: There Are at Least Two Kinds of Games

The task is to design rules that will allow the players to continue the game by taking these limits into play-even when death is one of the limits.

all the limitations of finite play are self-limitations

the proper exercise of such roles we positively believe we are the persons those roles portray. Even more: we make those roles believable to others.

At which point do we confront the fact that we live one life and perform another, or others, attempting to make our momentary forgetting true and lasting forgetting?
