OPEN:Finite/Infinite

«There are at least two kinds of games. One could be called finite, the other infinite. A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play. (…) Indeed, the only purpose of the game is to prevent it from coming to an end, to keep everyone in play. There are no SPATIAL or numerical boundaries to an infinite game. No world is marked with the barriers of infinite play (…) Since each play of an infinite game eliminates boundaries, it opens to players a new horizon of TIME.»

[CARSE, James P., Finite and Infinite Games, in Dot Dot Dot no.20, New York, 2010, p.86]
