In my last blog, I introduced the concept of Meta-Rules. These were the non-system or inherent rules that actually guide how people play.
I spoke about them rather abstractly, describing them in the following way
These [meta-rules] rules are beyond what you would consider written or system imposed rules. These are fluid rules that can change moment by moment. These are the rules that define how play unfolds. These are the unspoken rules that children manage to communicate to each other when they are playing, where the situation is constantly changing, but they always seem to be able to adapt to the changes without fuss
