This chapter explains how and why games are paradoxical in a thorough examination of the notions of Bernard Suits (1978), who has offered the clearest and most pointed definition of games and game rules available, but who has also offered a flawed set of conclusions regarding the non-paradoxy of games. This chapter reiterates Suits’ emphasis of the importance of game rules and repudiates his disallowance of game paradoxy in favor of non-paradoxical and cooperative game play.
