Game is the human’s instinct. It appears with the human’s creation and develops with human's development. It has played the important role in the practical life of humans. However, due to the diversified forms and styles, game remains difficult for us to state with an explicit and clear concept: what the game is on earth. In this paper, based on numerous doctrines about game's concepts in Chinese and foreign histories, we conclude and extracts and finally teases the concepts of games into two aspects: firstly, “the games of nature” based on biology properties; secondly, “the games of imagination” based on psychological properties.


Nature, Imagination, Game, Concept
