According to Chapter 1, a "Mind Game" is a game that can be made out of just about anything in day to day life and can last 10 minutes or years. The purpose of games are varied. They can be sexual, motivational, or just a structured way to spend time with another person....A mind game is like a psychological game of TWISTER, where the people themselves are the pieces. A mind game is designed to exercise carious strengths or weaknesses of a player's psychology...the deeper understanding players develop of each other's experiences and preferences, the more exciting and effective a game can be."
