Mostly relevant to ComputerGames, but quite possibly applicable to other games. For instance, if a game consists of three independent rounds, they might be played at different times. Or there might be a SuperGame?; for instance, one group keeps championship rankings for Formula_De?, so every game is part of a larger game.

Put forward for ComputerGames in Better_By_Design?, July 2002 (some additional notes in November 2002).
