So what was your answer to your client? What is your definition? Wikipedia has an inclusive definition with focus on children.

I had a similar question recently. What is the definition of a game? My play sets are for creative, imaginative play - there are no rules and there are no winners and losers. But, many people want to call it a game. So, I looked it up and was surprised to find:

1. an amusement or pastime: "children's games".
2. the material or equipment used in playing certain games: "a store selling toys and games".
3. a competitive activity involving skill, chance, or endurance on the part of two or more persons who play according to a set of rules, usually for their own amusement or for that of spectators.

I'm trying to think of a "game" that is an amusement of pastime, but doesn't have rules and is not competitive.

Interested in your thoughts.
