Dreaming of playing games traditionally means a time of relaxation and ease, wherein one can regather his or her resources.

Alternatively, this dream may be showing you that you haven’t been taking your life seriously, and your frivolity has become a defense mechanism that stands in the way of your ability to live an authentic and powerful life.

People dream about all different types of games. Some are simple and borrowed from daily life, like basketball or Monopoly. Other games in dreams are bizarre, incredible, totally unrealistic, and some are even sadistic.
To interpret the dream you must consider its greater context and your emotional reactions in it. Some games are simply a form of entertainment from your unconscious. You may be having fun in your dream. This is not all that common, but it does happen from time to time. Other “game” dreams may represent the challenges in your life, your competitive nature, or your childishness. They may point out goals to be achieved or are a simple way to let out steam.
The game in your dream could also represent “the game of life.” This is not an original thought on my part, but it deserves attention and consideration.
