A game is a structured form of play, often for entertainment, while a sport is a physical activity with competitive, skill-based, and rule-governed play, often recognized institutionally.
Game vs. Sport

Key Differences

Games encompass a wide range of activities, including board games, video games, and playground games, often emphasizing fun and entertainment. In contrast, sports are structured physical activities with a focus on physical exertion, skill, competition, and often have formal rules and organizations.

While games can be played casually or competitively, with or without physical exertion, sports are inherently physical and typically involve individual or team competition, with set rules and often organized in leagues or tournaments.

Games can include activities based purely on chance, strategy, or a combination of both, appealing to a wide range of ages and abilities. Sports, however, usually require physical skills and training, and are often spectator activities with a significant fan following.

Sports are recognized for their role in promoting physical fitness and are often regulated by official bodies, whereas games may not necessarily have such formal institutions or emphasis on physical well-being.

The term game is broader and can include sports, but not all games are sports. Conversely, all sports are games in the broader sense of structured play, but with specific additional characteristics like physicality and formal competition.
