This chapter examines the fate of belief in games and game play. There are those who claim that some beliefs are so resolute that it is difficult, if not impossible, to disbelieve them. Given the nature of games and game play, this chapter argues otherwise. Under the influence of a lusory attitude, under the influence of the rules of a game, it is not only common and possible for game players to disbelieve otherwise resolute beliefs, it is equally common and possible for game players to disbelieve that it is possible to disbelieve otherwise resolute beliefs.
