A non-serious or non-threatening competition. Testing yourself or seeing how far you can push a situation. A contest over social, financial, or status issues. Trying to outwit someone. A “winner takes all” situation.
Negatively, dreaming about games may reflect feelings about a need to be better than someone else. Attempting to earn bragging rights over your competition. Not considering other people feelings by refusing to take something seriously. Competing when it’s inappropriate.
