We define a game to be an organized mental exercise with a set of rules and any number of participants. Under this definition, chess, solitaire, and River City Ransom are all games, but sports such as basketball are not because they are more physical than mental. (Of course, nobody will seriously argue that sports are not a form of game, but the fact of the matter is that our slightly artificial definition is just more practical.)
