Abstract

During our previous work on games and meaning we have noted the strategic advantages of drawing a distinction between claims about ‘meaning’ and claims about ‘interpretation’ (Carr and Puff, 2019). One way to summarise this would be to think of ‘meaning’ as a noun that exists somehow, somewhere ‘in the game’, and interpretation as a verb – something that is done by somebody, somewhere, during some form of playful entanglement with a game. In this presentation we reflect on the usefulness of this distinction for addressing some of the challenges that arise when teaching game design and game analysis.
