Sample text

Das Spiel mit seinem offenen Ausgang baut Spannung auf. Wer spielt heute gut? Wer hat heute Glück? Wer überwindet Schwierigkeiten und Hindernisse? Wer gibt frühzeitig auf? Wer sucht/vermeidet ein Kräftemessen? In diese offene Situation einzusteigen ist immer wieder eine Herausforderung, weil niemand sicher sein kann, wie das Spiel verläuft und wie es ausgeht. Spielen bietet auch immer wieder eine Gelegenheit, am Rande der vorgeschriebenen Regeln zu handeln. Auszutesten, wie weit wir gehen können, ohne sanktioniert zu werden, kann ein Nervenkitzel sein, der uns entscheiden lässt, mitzuspielen.

So wird das Spiel unberechenbar und löst damit Frustration aus. Es geht darum, dass die anfänglichen Vorstellungen bei einzelnen Mitspielenden nicht mehr mit den entstandenen Unklarheiten übereinstimmen. Manchmal schaffen nicht die Spielenden, sondern ihre Umgebung ein Problem. So können Zuschauende durch ständige, »sachkundige« Kommentare den Spielenden lästig werden. Auch gut gemeinte Unterstützung, z. B. wenn Versorgung mit Essen und Trinken in einen ungünstigen Moment eintrifft, kann das Spiel empfindlich stören.

Bei einigen Spielen benötigt man bestimmte Geräte. In vielen Sportarten sind Bälle in unterschiedlichen Größen, aus unterschiedlichen Materialien und von unterschiedlichem Gewicht gefragt. Weiter werden bestimmte Utensilien wie Uhren, Startpflöcke usw. gebraucht. In anderen Spielen sind Spielkarten, Bretter, Würfel, etwas zum Aufschreiben usw. nötig. Je ernsthafter das Spiel gespielt wird, desto genauer wird das Spielsetting eingehalten. Wenn wir zu sechst in einer Silvesternacht zu unserem Vergnügen das Schokoladenspiel spielen, brauchen wir dazu eine Tafel Schokolade, Messer und Gabel, einen Würfel und ein paar Ausstattungsstücke.
