the game

  1. noun MUD from a play-oriented point of view, as opposed to one which is, say, scenario- or FE-oriented. When you are playing MUD, you are in the game. If you say to someone, "I'll see you in the game", it means you expect to encounter them while playing MUD. The phrase the game is never used adjectivally, unlike the term MUD. See also not part of the game, real world.
  2. noun Technically, that which is written in MUDDLE (or MUDDL) rather than that which is programmed to interpret it, or that which it interprets. This actually corresponds almost identically with sense 1, although only true addicts or programming language hackers would probably appreciate the fact.
