PLAY: an informal activity, lacking structure or rules no defined goal or objective. Often, we engage in PLAY simply to pass the time.
RECREATION: an activity we engage in for diversion or fitness a step up from play, because it may have a defined goal or purpose (like getting in shape), but lacks formal structure, rules, or the ability to win at it any rules are internally created (not formal)
GAMES: more formal, organized activities internal AND external rules often, the goal is to win do NOT have institutionally structured framework, like tournaments or leagues
