Abstract

What is meant by “games”? It is perhaps a very basic point to begin with, but just as with the other exclusions, the one for games is “as such”. No one seriously expects a patent application landing on their desk to simply recite the rules for hopscotch, yet methods for playing games do in fact still arrive. These can be games of chance with links to lottery systems, betting games played at a table or, which is more often the case, related to machines which in some way enable the playing of a game.
