Pdf [The Well Played Game A Player's Philosophy] BY Bernie DeKoven

G I am a fan of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein who famously used games as An Example Of A Concept example of a concept could philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein who famously used games as an xample of a concept that could be strictly defined and yet had a unity through a series of commonalities that he called a family resemblance The author s approach is consistent with this as he never tries to define the term Instead he is interested in reflecting on the many and varied aspects of game playing Wittgenstein thought that the best way to gain a proper understanding of a concept was to offer an bersicht of the concept a synopsis or overview This is in fact what the author does in xamining its many facets In fact I have never seen this done so well for any conceptFor the most part the author s discussion remains at a fairly high level of abstraction only occasionally illustrating his points with an xample I would have liked him to use The Deepest Sin examplesspecially as he has a huge fund to draw on One odd aspect of his xperience with games is an interest and apparently xperience with them constantly changing during the very playing of them And he is always discussing a myriad of variants that could be played While I don t doubt that such changes could happen my xperience of game playing is much one in which people simply take the rules for granted and are not so interested in making modifications all the time I suppose this is part of the author s being a kind of free spirit It s kind of an xploration of what Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is talking about with flow But pretty much in the context of playing games But then by the author s definition lots of things can be games ven things like religious observance What I like about this is that he brings.
