Games have always served as a metaphor for how the mind is structured in psychological, neurological and philosophical terms. Taking this further, the Village Game points how all games act as user manuals for how consciousness works, enabling parents and children who wonder about the inner workings of their own mental functions.
Games have always been a part of society, a requisite to our stages of evolution. Our cognitive development as a whole owes much to the history of games, which can be found in our diverse cultures in one form or another. There are many reasons why so many people are attracted to games, role-playing, competitions, sports, contests and the like.
